Great mate .

Next thing is to refit them all properly so that you don't inadvertently start a bush or grass fire underneath yourself!

No problems. Glad it was an easy fix, once you had a starting point.

I still have this happen every so often when offroad and push the exhaust up against the gearbox.

Flat four, not flat footed.

Yeah not much room between the exhaust and the gear box.

It is a pain in the butt that the heat shield has to go back on. I am looking at ways of covering the exhaust with a fire proof coating and then put the heat shield on. This way it should stop future rattles.
