I had the heat shield removed from the car to stop the rattling. Is it important to have it replaced? What is the function of the heat shield in the Lexus hybrid car. How much to repair it? Many thanks

Just as the name suggests. To keep heat from places where it does not need to be. All you need is a muffler shop and without seeing the vehicle no one can guess price over the web. It was put there for a purpose so why take a chance, replace it .
