The bolts that hold up the heat shield above my muffler have corroded and caused the heat shield to fall off. It is now resting on top of the muffler. Mechanically it is not worrying me. What does happen though is that when I am idling at a stop light or in the driveway I can hear the shield rattling on top of the muffler. Anyone know if it would be safe to just pull the heat shield out entirely? Thanks in advance

It is the "Actual" muffler, the one that is like the size of a small boat ;) Not the cat,or the resonator. I thought about trying to order a new heat shield which is about $35 online, but I think that the bolts may be so corroded that If I try to take the nuts off of them I may just end up breaking them instead. Thanks for your input. Have you take yours off?
