(Could make a good SRV song)

Anyways, the heat shield over my exhaust manifold is rattleing REALLY loud in idle, and up through acceleration just a bit. I'm thinking about taking it off to look underneath it, maybe pad it or something, but the nuts and bolts that hold it on are SEVERELEY rusted, and I'm afraid that if i take it off, i won't be able to get it back on. Anyone else have this problem, with any advice?

just take it off, and leave it off. I have taken the shield off almost every Escort that I have owned over the years.

Took it off yesterday. It wasn't that one, it was the heat shield over the cat, so i did some rigging, and it doesn't rattle anymore. But now that i can't hear the rattle, i can hear some other noises... I'll have to work on those too.
