Swapped my snow tires out two days ago (hence the snow is falling here today, thank you)...<br>Usual look around while the car is up and noticed this heat shield took a beating over the winter. Thoughts on replacing? Warranty (I have the extended plan, but it's $100 deductible)? <p>Also had some grease around the top of the passenger shock, none on the drivers side. I wiped it down, we'll have to see if it re-appears.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.fineproperty.com/volvo/heat-shield.jpg" BORDER="0">

Warranty won't cover it. I tried. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

The same rust occured on my first R and I ended up buying an EST cat-back to replace it.

Re: Rusty heat shield (GiRaff3)

I did a search on exhausts, some great systems out there. It's only the heat shield at this point though, and not even the one that keeps the car safe, but the one that keeps dry grass from catching fire. I don't know if I've ever parked on grass more than once at a concert.
