So when the engine shook from starting off with too low RPM's, the exhaust would shake as well, hitting the shield causing a nasty sound.
I bent the metal shield away as much as I could from the exhaust, haven't heard anything since then..
i had the exact same problem in my old civic haha just strapped it nice and tight
