[DML] Re: Annoying rattling sound, help!

Are the bolts on that heat shield something relatively easy to get 
to?  Or does the car need to be lifted or things taken apart...    

On the DVD of the DMCH Open House from last year (or if you were 
there in person)  I remember one part where James is giving the 
warehouse tour and he mentions what I recall to be the exact same 
problem.  His car was making a noise and it was that same heat 
shield rattling.

Needless to say, my car makes such a noise, but not under "normal" 
driving, only if I go above 3000 rpm.  (typically I don't, since I 
have an automatic).  I haven't searched the engine compartment yet 
for the culprit, but it looks like I'll start with this heat shield.
