Back box heat shield

There seems to be controversy over the rear back box heat shield. Mine fell off a few days ago due to rusted bolts and I just took the full thing off to stop it rattling as it was a Sunday night and I was due to make a long drive early on Monday.

There doesnít seem to be anything happening at the moment, and Iíve researched online and people have said not replacing/re-attaching it is fine as itís just added to the car as a requirement.

Do you think itís worth me getting a new one put on or just leave it off?

Thanks

Re: Back box heat shield

If it’s just rusted bolts can you not just get some new bolts and reattach it ? Maybe put some over sized washers in if the holes in the shield are now too big ?

Re: Back box heat shield

I should have said that thereís no remnants of the screws either. Thereís just nothing left, itís all just crumbled away. To remove the heat shield I had to bend it to get it off so Iíd need a new one if I was to replace it.

What would you do?
