If it is metal remove the shield and pound it back in to shape and reinstall. If it is plastic you are pretty much out of luck unless you can do the same with the plastic one. May as well try it because you will have to remove it anyway. Good luck.

4. Remove the inlet radiator hose from the engine.
5. Remove the thermostat bypass pipe.
6. Remove the exhaust crossover heat shield bolts.
7. Remove the exhaust crossover heat shield.
8. Remove the exhaust crossover pipe studs/nuts.
9. Remove the exhaust crossover pipe.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
1. Install the exhaust crossover pipe.
2. Install the exhaust crossover pipe studs/nuts.
3. Tighten the exhaust crossover pipe studs/nuts to 18 lb ft.
4. Install the exhaust crossover heat shield.
5. Install the exhaust crossover heat shield bolts.
6. Tighten the exhaust crossover heat shield bolts to 89 lb in.
7. Install the thermostat bypass pipe.

With the truck in park or any other gear,I can hear a rattling under the vehicle.


If it is a tinny rattle, I would suspect a loose heat shield on or above the exhaust. When it is cool, hit the exhaust with your hand at various points until you hear the rattle. If it is a heat shield attached to the exhaust, it can be repaired with a large hose clamp placed around it.
