On my daughters petrol vitara the heat shield rattles badly is there a permanent fix for this ?the mounting bolts are all tight.

Take it off. It probably doesn’t protect against much anyway

Was it like a small stainless band?
I recently had my Niece complain of a rattle on the exhaust of her newly acquired 1.6 S-Cross 2WD, on investigation I found a scuffed heat shield and a broken stainless clip that fixed the heat shield to the exhaust
Explaining what I had found I said it could well have the previous owner had attempted a speed bump to quick or had been a bit enthusiastic off road (car had old Fishing permits in glove box) to which she replied "well every week I scrape it on the kerb as I leave my dads house but didn't think it would hurt" affraid
