I have a 2006 solstice.Recentley noticed a peace of
insulation hanging from the back end close and partially
on the muffler.The dealer wants $100.00 to fix I'm assuming
I can get the insulation and replace it myself.Anyone run into
this and any input?

If you're talking about the heat shield type material that is just under the back trunk area I'd think you could do that yourself.

I got self-stick heat blanket material from Eastwood. You get enough to cover the whole area above and around the muffler; more than the original area. It's very sticky, so make sure you have it in place as you remove the protective backing paper.

MomsSol you are correct it is the heat shield located just
above the muffler in the rear.I have placed an order for a
new insulation shield and a mechanic at the dealership was
telling me about a product that's used in the GM bodyshop.
Supposed to be a real strong bonding agent apparently this sticks
on.
