Hi All,

I recently had a problem where the rear section of my heat shielding in the transmission tunnel (above the propshaft) fell onto the propshaft because the clip (or metal around it) had rusted away. I held it up with some welding wire and its fine, however now the front has collapsed and looking at it I can't see any way of holding it back up! Has anyone had this problem before? I looked on realoem.com and it shows clips that hold up the shield, will these have broken or if the front shield mount has rusted is there another way of holding it??

Thanks

I wasn't aware that there was a heat shield ABOVE the prop:confused There isn't on my Touring;)

The exhaust heat shields below the prop but above the exhaust are prone to rusting around the securing bolts and falling down on to the exhaust:thumbsup
