I have a 2003 petrol SVE X Trail. The car has developed a rattle which I thought was the rear exhaust box being loose or a mounting bracket broken. However, when I looked underneath there is an aluminium sheet that I assume is a heat shield that has broken away from the underside of the spare wheel well. Anybody had this problem and how was it fixed back?
Thanks

Hi,

This is not specific for the xtrl, but unless you do alot of off roading...just take it off as it has only probably started to corrode around the screw fixings and won't get any better!!! The heat shield started to rattle on my last estate car (Mazda6 :oops: ) so i just pulled the ****** thing off and it didn't do anything other than stop the damn rattle :thumbs:

Hope this non too delicate approach helps!
