Well had a rattle from the exhaust. Had a peek and heat shield had dropped onto top of large exhaust box at the back. Popped it into a local garage and they advised it should simply be removed...as it serves no purpose
So my qq is now slightly lighter.

I Had a quick Google and seems to be true. No major components at the back and seems to be there in case of extreme heat conditions and car being stationery for long time.

.. and yet this was a known issue which would have been fixed at a regular dealership service, a larger screw was required.

Fair point but the dealer is about 40mins away and it was only in there 3 weeks ago for a service...shame they did not spot it was failing off
