    Fitting The Heat Shield? - S3

    Now then,

    Ive come to the conclusion I want to fit my heat shield now.

    But there are these weird screw in things that get in the way.

    2 situated on the heat shield for the exhaust manifold and the other 2 nearer the front. the front 2 can stay as they're not in the way! (it's where the engine cover originally pushes and clips into and has a rubber bushing on top.

    What's the best way to take these out? Ive tried big pliers etc, but I don't want to ruin them anymore than I have as I may want to return to stock at some point.

    I know they simply unscrew, but is there a tool for the job?

    I found the right size socket that's deep enough did the job fairly well
