Can I PLEASE take these squeeky ass shields off without blowing up? At first it wasn't so bad, now it's getting worse....If I "need" them, is there anywhere to buy replacements?
you need them , unless you have calf dumpsCan I PLEASE take these squeeky ass shields off without blowing up? At first it wasn't so bad, now it's getting worse....If I "need" them, is there anywhere to buy replacements?
Think I'd blow up wolf? If I was to do cut off's and come out the side with my tips would I still need them?you need them , unless you have calf dumps
replace the bolts and retainers and dyno mat them w/ locktite
that was the only way i was able to get them to STFU with my 3 12's
LOL...guess I'm gonna have to go this route. And yeah I can feel the heat pouring from under the car when i stand beside it...cwm1After a drive, I can feel the hot air from the exhaust coming up from the rear wheelwells. I would never drive without those shields, especially considering the fact that if you get in an accident, the back of the car just wads up.
Just get under there and fix them. JB weld them, screw them together, use zip ties, sticky-backed rubber pads, whatever you gotta do. You can make them quiet.
It's not like a banging...just a constant, rhythmatic, tick under heavy acceleration. The heat shields bang and squeek whenever the car rocks or goes over a bump, but this is only when I accelerate hard....look at how the exhaust goes near the rear suspension. It may be touching something. Look for shiny marks that reveal evidence of rubbing.
It sounds like its coming from the front of the car...up by the passenger side...I was getting the most horrible whine in first gear when accelerating from a stop, but only after the car was very warm, as in driven for a long period of time. Based on the symptoms, the finger pointed toward a worn planetary gear set. So I had the trans rebuilt. Guess what...the problem persisted. Could not figure out what it was. So I was under the car recently and just realized that one of the heat shields is hanging loose around the gas tank. Could be some sort of obnoxious resonance coming from there. I've got to tie it up somehow this weekend and see what the results are.
I had the bzzt bzzt noise too, it was the pass rear heat shield up against my Borla, when we dropped tha gas tank to replace the fuel pump & sending unit we removed the shield and reshaped it so it would be away from the exhaust, now no more bzzt bzzt noiseyou could always buy some sheet metal (little thicker) and make some new ones too.
Mine bug the crap outta me at idle (bzzzt bzzzt all the time), but my wife usually drives that one so outta earshot, outta mind..
