FN2 Type R Exhaust heat shield

Hi all, I was driving home today and I came to a stop at a set of traffic lights and I hear a horrible rattling sound, I got home and looked under the car to see that the heat shield just under the drivers side door had fallen and was rattling against the exhaust pipe.

Do I really need the heat shield or can I just get the other bolts off and remove it or should I get a washer and try to bolt it back up? If bolt and washer does anyone know what size the bolts are?

Was it the two rear bolts that have gone through?

I think they’re all M6. I’m looking at doing a similar task on my diesel. I can’t decide between patching and a pair of washers clamping the shield onto the boss.

Obviously it’s much harder to notice the racket on mine than a K20. 😉
