Can you remove heat shield

9527 14
I want to remove my heat shield so that I can find my exhaust leak.

My question is can I remove it and still be able to drive my truck without it being a issue? Or would it be best to bend it down?

Thanks karim, I just had my girl hit the gas and felt it coming out of the right side and a smaller one on the left side.
Thats why I could find it before because I would just get under the truck and feel for a leak.

I can't tell because it's hard to look around the heat shield, I just did like karim said and put my hand up there to feel the leak while my girl pushed the gas. I want to take the shield off so I can see where it is.

yea i might have to do that and see if this shop can do a temporary repair till I can replace them.


I'd go jba, I'll see if I can find you a good deal somewhere.
I appreciate that, cause with summer school start I need to save every buck I can
