exhaust manifold heat shield

Hy guys,

Have a cracked heat shield that buzzez at certain revs and it drives me mad!
Do you know where I can find a new/good exhaust manifold head shield for my 147 1.6 TS for less than 100 quid (dealer price)?
Is there another solution to this? Wrapping the exhaust manifold with some sort of material?

The Ts doesn't need one so you can take it off although if you want one i@m sure Dan will ship you a cheap secondhand one. Contact Autolusso

I had the same sound on certain revs and it wasnt the heat shield. I removed it and the sound was still present. It was a broken exhaust bracket somewhere under the engine. First remove the heat shield and check if it produces the sound. I never put mine back on, it's just too ugly and I dont think it's doing anything useful.
