Default Removing heat shield?

How do you get the heat shield off? I can reach some of the screws but how do you get to the screws on the side near the bottom. I can't see how to get to them. I spent an hour trying to get the heat shield off and its still on my WRX.
I need help.
Thanks for any advise.

Which one are you talking about?

If it's the turbo heatshield then jack up the car, crawl underneath and get at the bolts from there.

Good luck.

If you are talking about the turbo heat shield and the side screws to the passenger side... if you can't get to them with any of your tools from the bottom then...

Take the stock air box out and you will have direct access to them.

I just slid an air ratchet down into the gap. I think you could do the same with a ratchet, maybe a little more dificult?

I used an open end wrench from the top. I believe all the screws are the same size. But then again I am a caveman.

If you think getting them out is tough, wait til you try to screw them back in - I could only manage 2 of the 3.

What heat shield are YOU talking about? The turbo heat shield has something like 8 screws. Although I have to admit mine only has 2 holding it in place.

Sorry, I should have made it more clear - I was talking about the 3 screws at the bottom of the turbo heat shield.
