I am in the process of changing my rear silencers on my 2003 C2 3.6.

I have noticed the Silencer Heatshields in wheel arches are loose. I went to remove the offside one to add some larger washers but both studs in the top of the wheel arch snapped.

Any ideas how to replace these studs?

You can drill them out, and then put a bolt through and tighten a nut down onto it to secure it, then secure the heatshield to it with a second nut and washers.

You can grind off the remains flush, then glue a stud plate onto it with structural epoxy.

You can weld a stud plate on.

You can get a stud welder (my local welding shop has one) that will weld a new stud on directly in place of the old one. This is obviously the closest option to oem.

I use Ashby Welding in Church Crookham, Hants, whenever I need anything welding. They're cheap and the quality is extremely high.
