Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.
The heat protector is held on with 3 small bolts. Here is a diagram of it.

I have the bolts off, but can't seem to get the heat shield out. Is there anything else I need to remove?
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 years ago.
No they just sometimes have to be manipulated around so they come off. If the 02 sensor wire gets in the way and you plan to replace the sensor you can cut the wires at the sensor to make it easier, (I normally do), thanks

That is all the information that I have on it, but wait there may be another expert who has more. I will opt out and open it back up. Please DON’T REPLY to this post as that will lock the question back to me, also DON’T RATE THE ANSWER yet, someone should be along shortly, I’m sure, thanks and sorry I wasn’t able to help with it.
