If anyone is familiar with removing the heat shield to the exhaust manifold on a 1.9 liter engine on a ‘95 Escort, please chime in. I have shot the 3 screws with PB Blaster several times, and they are able to turn freely. My main issue is removing the unknown rigid pipe that runs from the front of the exhaust manifold to the back near the intake manifold. It is also needed to be done in order to free the shield. The rear-most fastener of it poses the biggest problem because the area is so tight. A crows foot might work, but it would need to be 28mm. Hard to find! The 2 fasteners in the front of it are of different sizes, 1” & 28mm. Once the shield is off, I’m hoping to check all of the bolts, as I can actually see one that has backed out, and there’s probably more. I’ll re-torque to spec and enjoy driving it again! Thanks in advance for advice, and please identify the rigid pipe I spoke of earlier. I’m not sure of its purpose.
