The two exhaust heat shields on drivers side (practically under the car from where the driver sits) are loose. I've tried using pieces of coat hanger to secure them and clamp them down tight but they continue to rattle.
I guess I could go out and get some hose clamps too if I really want to try and get them tight.
Any of you guys have a solution for this? Will it do any harm just taking them off (as they loosen on there own)?
Same issue on my 06 at 32K. New hose clamps took care of it. Just the old rusty ones off and put some new clamps on. I would do all of them at once, otherwise you will be back under your truck in no time.
Mine were rattling like crazy... I put two metal hose clamps on the offending parts and it took care of it. If it rusts away over the winter I'll spend another $3 in the spring and do it again. No big deal, less than 5 bucks and 5 minutes of work.
If they were really that important why would Nissan's answer to fixing them being to take them off? To each his own, I've taken them off most all my vehicles as they start to rust away or start rattling. Replacing the clamps would work also.
