Default Heat Shields ?

Hello,

Not too automotive sharp, so would be grateful for some advice on this.

My son has a 2005 Honda Accord with 175K on it now.

Dealership just told him that the "Heat Shield," and the "Rear Heat
Shield" are 90 % gone.

Guess there are apparently two heat shields in question ?
Are there two of them ?

a. Is this a safety issue ?

b. what are these things, exactly ?

c. If they are 90% gone, I assume the other 10 % will go shortly ?
What's your opinion on this; a few months probably ?

The Dealership wanted $ 500 to replace.
Reasonable, or...?

Much thanks,
Bob

That's nice. See my reply in the other group you posted to.

Would have been nice for responders to post answers aside from snide comments and links to a search engine.

My previous 03 Accord had its heat shields rot off. Sometimes you can extend the life by several years by taking off some bolts and putting a larger diameter washer between the bolt and heat shield. My limited experience isthat the heat shields tend to rust at the bolts. $500 seems too much, think it should be half that at an expensive shop, under $200 at an independent.

"Links"? I didn't post any links to any search engine. I just told the OP
he's not following Usenet protocol.

If OP can't cross-post or wants to multi-post for some weird reason, he
should say so in each post in each group. Like this:
"This identical post has been made to both rec.autos.tech and
alt.autos.honda."

That way, readers know to look in both places to see if there have been
replies, since any replies will necessarily be invisible to the other
group.

Anyway, I cross-posted my rec.autos.tech reply so that it will show up in
both groups. See today's messages.

Would you like some cheese to go with that whine?

Pity you won't take either personal responsibility or initiative--
expecting everyone here to spoon-feed you basic info you can readily
locate yourself-- then ask a question that requires some experience or
specialized knowledge.

I told you to "start here" to find the basic info you needed but you've
put on the cloak of the poor aggrieved helpless party. Man up son, grow
a pair....

Depends where you live. On my 91' Civic, I got a rattle after
about 3 years. The dealer basically said: that's just a
heat shield and yanked it off, no charge. Did the same when
another shield started to rattle a few years later. The did not
feel those shields were needed here in southern Ontario; at least
for that generation of Civic.

Newer cars may be different. My 2003 Civic hybrid has not
had any heat shield problems.

Check with an independant mechanic, about whether you even need
the shields in your area.

Had that pointed out on two Hondas==first one rattled so I just tied a coat
hanger around the heat shield to hold it on. Rattle gone.
Second one--no rattle so I just ignored it. Been two years now and no
rattle yet

Worm-drive hose clamps are a MUCH better solution.

Not completely under the car--tight area--was easy to do,; would have needed
two clamps tied together--one coat hanger worked very well and the price was
right.
