Hiya,

just read up on de-baffling the airbox, i want to give it a go, just wondered is it possible to actualy do it on a Euro 1993 318i (M40)?

Also i just noticed from an earlier post, about rattling coming from a loose heatsheild, well mine is so loose i can actualy take it out, i take it these are supposed to be attatched(bolted on?)

Mines all rusted and old and crumbling, can you get a replacement for these?

Directly underneath where the Spark plug leads enter the engine.

its VERY rusted, and starting to crumble, but also rattles around when i drive as its not attatched to anywhere to keep it still.

Its an M40 engine by the way!

Not sure exactly the build of that heatshield, but......if it is breaking up and you are poking around with it, be aware that it could contain asbestos, and as such could be potentially harmfull if the powder is inhaled, sorry to be paranoid, but better safe than sorry.

best regards David
