hi, what exactly is the heat shield? whenever my car is idle or just moving real slow, you can hear some sort of like rattling, clanking noise coming from under the car somewhere. but when im idle and just press down on the clutch the noise goes away, and when you release the clutch it comes back. anyone have any idea if its the heat shield, or something else? thanks

Mines was making alot of noise and one day while I was at my mechanic, I told him to remove it and all the vibrations and noise stopped.

Yes you'll be ok over bumps and if the car is lowered. All the sheild is, is a cover that protects the cat but most people take their shield off because it begins to rattle after awhile.
