Gears & Axles - What is the shield on top of the differential housing for?
07-02-2012, 10:12 PM
I have a 02 Z28 M6 and while I was replacing the rear end cover I noticed a shield type thing that is held in by the top 3 housing cover bolts. My new support cover doesnt allow the shield to be replaced without some modification. Does anyone know what this shield type thing is for and do I really need to put it back on with the new cover??

Nice of them to include a debris shield - almost like they were fully expecting the 10 bolt to explode :jest:

I never figured out what it was for. So no you don't need it.

Is it the little shield to keep heat from the exhaust getting to the brake lines?

It doesn't appear to be a heat shield. Too thick, im just leaving it off. Thanks for the info guys.
