    my car and my buddies car have the heat shields removed due to an annoying rattle. no problems so far lol.. mine's been off for almost 2 years now.

    you can also try to tighten it back up.. it could be a little loose.

    Just remove the heat shield and have not any safety issues. I know this only solution but may be you will find another solution by consulting with a garage guy.

    Re: anybody know how to...

    Usually you can just bend them or crimp/crease them to get the rattling to stop... But I would check all of your exhaust mounts/hangers/brackets because a lot of times that I get heat shield rattle complaints; it's due to the exhaust being able to move around too much from a broken or worn out mount... Just something worth checking out while you're under there
