    Astra Rattle!!!

    My wife has a 98 Astra 1800 sport that has developed an annoying rattle seemingly from the rear end. On looking under the car the only thing that i think it can be is the exhaust heat shield over the back box as it has broken off it's mounts in a couple of places. The question is ....can i just remove it or will i need to replace it with another one???

    If you can get the retaining nuts off then, yes - just get another heat shield and replace it.

    It's the bolts for the retaining nuts that have come away from the body. Will it be ok to leave the heat shield off completely???

    Never hurt my mk3 when I removed them after they they all fell off and started clanging about - so I don't see the Mk4 as any different.
