Looking at the three bolt holes, appears the bolts spun out. There were no rub marks on the heat shield or rusted stubs left behind. The bolt holes were so rusted I was not able to re-thread, they must have been missing for a while. I do not know of any previous work on the vehicle were those bolts were removed, the most major repair documented, was timing chain replacement.
