Heat Shield

Can anyone tell me if they had the same problem, and what they did about it.
While the car is in motion, if you took your foot of the accelerator a bit and then back on I could hear a whistle coming from somewhere under the car. Took it to the dealer and found it was the heat shield around the exhaust that had moved, and it was re-postioned. Well its back again the same noise that is, and its booked inn for them to have a look, do you really need to have it, and what is the heat shield protecting.

Re: Heat Shield

Part of my heat sheild above the drivers side cat fell down onto the cat, didnt make any noise but it was somthing that they noticed. They glued it back and within 2 days it fell down again so i took it off, when i go in for the 3k service im going to mention it along with a few others.
