What is this?

Realized a rattling coming from under the hood and then noticed this piece is loose. What is it and how should I go about fixing this?

Re: What is this?

its just a heat shield. they become loose and start rattling all the time, hence ppl take them off all the time. i believe the hardest part about taking it off is a giant 17mm bolt on the bottom which is always incredibly rusty, with very limited access due to it being right next to the AC compressor/alternator.
