Re: 147 Heat shield problems
two solutions that have worked are
1. keep the old one and repair it. they usually crack around the mounting points as these act as heat sinks and warp it repeatedly untill it cracks. to repair it get some very big washers, remove the sheild a bolt at a time and put the large washers on either side of the bolt hole thus reinforcing it.
2. blue peter it and make your own sheild. (you could possibly) remove the old one make a cast from plaster and put non ferrous sheet metal over the mould, shape it, bore the holes and in no time youve made a hardier sheild than alfa will supply you with?
