Mine only came off with the heat of a blowtorch. You could try getting the engine to temperature and trying to crack the bolts, but be very careful
(though it probably won't be hot enough on the bolt)

I had to get the grinder out to take my rattley heatshield off


Its always the hard to reach nuts that won't budge. After two lost knuckels out the grinder came!
