Evening gents, Couple of questions.
Bottom of the Heat-shield has lost its metal cable ties, found them jangling the other week.
Bought some new SS ones slightly wider and thicker. Is it just dropping the under tray and reaching up. ?

Thanks

I usually remove the front pipe and replace all the straps while I've got the pipe off. If one strutted away the others aren't far behind. There's only 4 14mm headed bolts to remove from the exhaust flanges and the front pipe can be withdrawn. You'll need the car on axle stands to get a bit of height though.
I usually use the stainless steel CV boot straps shown below, but you need a tensioning tool too.
Never had much luck with jubilee type clips, even stainless ones. They rust away within 12 months and are too wide for the recess in the heat shield.

Wow thanks for that Imack. So I found two of the bands jangling on the exhaust. Is there more holding on the heat shield.


Thanks very much

I replaced the straps on an S-Cross 1.6 only last week but I can't remember whether it had 3 or 4 straps. I think it was 3.

4 bands on an M16a Vitara, I'm sure an S-Cross will be the same.Exhaust Manifold Heat Shield rattle 20220411
