Rear exhaust heatshield

My exhaust heatshield was rattling a bit so i took it off to check. The bolt holes are far to big for the washer due to cracks. Ive read a lot of people just remove them. Any suggestions on how to get it back on? Tried making washers with plastic but they'll melt in a matter of time.

If you have a few threads showing then pop a nut on the broken bolt?

borrow a dremel, cut a groove in the top and use a screw driver to get it out. I recently fixed my heat shield with the exact same issue. I simply bought a cheap galvanized L shaped bracket about 1 inch on each "leg" and with holes drilled in it. I bent it straight and then cut it in half to give 2 x 1 inch lengths with holes pre-drilled in them. Put the heat shield back in place and use your "new" brackets like a washer over the holes. Fix in place and then bend to clamp the heat shield tight enough to not rattle.

you may be able to get some mole grips on it an unscrew it, it may be advisable to buy new fixings as well
