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.

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.
