Question

hi, i have a 2003 ford fiesta zetec. recently ive had my catalytic converter changed and the heatshield that covers this was removed because it was damaged. im just wondering how long i can drive without the heat shield because i have a planned trip to london and need to drive there. also how much does it usually cost for a new and to fit it, roughly? thanks


Answer

The heat shield is to protect the vehicle body from the high temp from the catalyst, yes you can run without this shield but it could produce problems later on in the vehicles life. It is not an expensive part to replace i should think around £50
