Planning to replace the catalytic converter heat shield soon to get rid of a rattle that's developed. Already have all the parts, just looking for a free weekend.

Just wondering, does the O2 sensor need to be removed in order to get the old heat shield off? Or is there a way to easily unplug the O2 sensor and fit the plug through the hole in the heat shield?

Here's a picture of the heat shield. Am I correct in thinking that it won't come off without the O2 sensor being removed?

I would think you could unplug the sensor and pull the connector through. ( just a guess )
Hopefully.

If not, I might just cut a small slit in the heat shield in order to replace it without having to deal with removing the O2 sensor. I'd rather not mess with the sensor if possible.

When you replace that O2 sensor, you have to unplug it and the connector is way smaller than that hole. Not difficult. Unplug the sensor, remove the shield , install the new shield, reconnect the sensor.

That's some good info right there. I'm definitely not going to forget that.
