Hopefully this is in the right place, I'm new here.
I drive a 2015 Versa SV w/ 46k miles. About 2 months ago, I ran over a small log on freeway after it fell out of someone's truck. The car cleared it and suffered no visible damage except deflated tires, but I'm afraid it might have messed something up near the left front portion of my car in the suspension or wheel assembly.
I had my tires changed/balanced, etc. and shortly after experienced this subtle plastic rattling noise (for sure not dash rattle) and loud creaking when going over speed bumps. Had my suspension & undercarriage checked out twice and they said nothing was wrong.
My next thought was a bad wheel bearing, but I don't have any grinding noises, wheel wobble, or uneven rotor wear, so I'm not so sure. Any ideas?
What constitutes the heat shield fix? Retightening the bolts? Putting on new bolts? Replacing the heat shield? My heat shield fix also started to rattle several months ago. I tightened the bolts; the noise went away for a few days (weeks?) but came back. I haven't bothered to retighten the bolts since then (taking care of a baby and just being lazy).
