Catalytic Converter Heat Shield Replacement $560????
So I have had a weird screeching sound at around 2000 RPMs on my 2006 Ridgeline. After searching the forum it looked like the problem was related to TSB 07-028 (intermediate shaft heat shield is loose) so I took it to the dealer to get the heat shield replaced. After diagnosing my Ridgeline they are telling me the Catalytic Converter Heat shield rusted and causing the problem. I had both of my catalytic converters replace about a year and half ago, but I guess they didn't replace the catalytic converter heat shield. Now this dealer wants to charge me $560 total to replace a $40 part. Does this sound right or are they gouging me? Is it going to take that labor to remove the exhaust and catalytic converters and replace the heat shield?
