    Mines rattling like hell, had a look underneath and noticed that one of the bolts is missing which holds it in place - now im not sure whether its fell out or its rotten.
    Does any know what bolt/screw size it is and anyone know of any easy fixes if the fixing is rotten?

    Regards

    which one is missing mate?
    far as i remember there are 4 bolts (2 each side) which go through the exhaust mounting brackets and through the heat shield into the chassis/body, then two nuts at the front that go onto threaded studs which are part of the rear ARB mounting clamps, and two more nuts that go onto threaded studs that are part of the spare wheel well.
    not sure of the sizes, i would imagine that if it is just one of the ones holding heat shield and not the brackets you could maybe do something likes of packing something in between the body and the shield (Silicone sealant well cured should stop a rattle anyway.)
