The heat shield on the exhaust manifold is rattling. Visual inspection doesn't show much rust or signs of cracking and all four bolts are still there. The dealer offered to remove it for $35, I said no.

I am going to remove it and inspect it, I would still like to use it if possible but the rattling has been driving me crazy.

Is there any other options for protecting the wiring and what not in the engine bay if I do have to permanently remove it?

Well I was right and wrong. Since my motor mounts were bad, that cause the lower bracket on the heat shield to split in half. Only had to remove the upper two bolt sand it came right out. Downside is I can't run a heat shield now. There is some plumbing and wiring on the fire wall, should I be concerned?
