Big rattle under van at start up. Look under van as wife starts and it is the heat shield. That should be covered under the Honda Care....Right?? What all will they replace or will they just rip it off???

mine's rattling too. i think if it's not too badly rusted they might clamp it or put something on to keep it from rattling. if it's too far gone i think they just rip it off.

Is that how Honda fixes broken/failed parts?:(

Not covered under warranty........5 minutes......3 Hose clamps I had in my garage......Noise gone. Dealer told me they would ZIP TIE it for 25 bucks or so.

I suppose this is a common thing.....It happend on my Altima with far fewer miles....It got the hose clamp treatment too

You have no idea how many of those heat shields I've seen on the roadside, of different makes, dimensions and types, on I-10 from Los Angeles to San Antonio. You'd swear that the average car or truck has a "jettison" button to release it from under the vehicle.

I don't think anybody cleans up or picks up anything on I-10 between L.A. and the Arizona border. Just lots of garbage, tire debris, etc. Stuff that looks like catalytic converter and exhaust pipe heat shields (formed, rusted metal that obviously weren't body parts), most of them flattened from people running over them.

You don't want to drive onto the shoulder. Instant flat tire.

can someone post a quick pic as to where the worm gear clamp was placed, I have the problem but can't see how to wrap it up, the piece that looks like it rattles isn't round...it covers the exhaust pipe, I saw in another thread a pic to the exhaust system, but that link is broken, thanks.

I currently have the same problem with my '07 Ody. The dealer is charging me $50 to just look at it. If anyone has any pics on how to fix, replace, or remove this heatshield it would be appreciated. I am no mechanic but i hope i can get under the car and see where it is rusted.

Get under the car, have your wife rev it until it rattles and wrap a hose clamp around what is rattle'n after you find it. I suggest you do it when it is cold and off

And make sure the wife isn't pissed off at you for any reason. :)

aren't you lucky? my dealer just quoted me, wait,, are you guys sitting down?...

- Front Cat Shields replaced - $425
- Rear Cat Shields replaced - $450
- Bottom Cat Shields replaced - $145

my response - WTF? I think I am going to take my Ody to another mechanic.

For the catalytic converter shields, the cheap side of my brain quoted me $5 for a couple of worm gear steel straps. I took the offer and now it's fixed. Rattle gone.
