[QUOTE=Blink;2779365]Good idea Steve - especially the moulded washers. I see you've used flat sheet for some washers and some bits cut from another heatshield for others. I don't have either of those so I'll have to buy something. What thickness flat sheet did you use?

Hi Simon.
The alloy I used was some that I found in the shed, i think it came off an old washing machine? it was about 2mm thick being that thickness you can form it to fit.

I've got some rubber washers that would do the same thing (bought them to fix the wheel arch liner problem. )

Curses - I got rid of an old machine recently but didn't keep any side panels off it. I did keep some its bolts though.

Plan B.

Turns out the rear heatshield also has the electro-thingy so I've bought a new one (£18.26 ex vat yesterday in the 17% sale).

Now I can chop the old one up and make some moulded washers for the front one (as per Arctic's 2nd pic in post 7).
