    Right come to take the nuts off so i could refit the shield all`s going well then the last nut snaped off,should i now leave it off or bolt it back on useing the 2 bolts left and get it spot welded where the 1 bolt snaped??i have around 6" from the top of the backbox to the under body of the car the only part that is close is where the exhaust goes over the rear beam it got around 2-3" but thats near to the brake line witch i think the heat shield may cover but not over sure.help needed plz.

    When i went to refit mine, Nearly all the bolts snapped off. So I just took it off.

    Managed to fix the one on the centre pipe, Probably the only place it matters IMO.
