Loosing parts on highway!!!

I was driving on a highway when I heard the noise of smth metal scratching the pavement. I was doing around 60 and it was loud and scary! I thought it was the exhaust.

What i saw was a metal part barely hanging on one screw instead of four. What is this?
A couple of days earlier i had my fuel pump replaced and i have a feeling that the repair guys didn't attach it properly! Can i drive with out it, so i could get to that shop and make them fix it?

Thanks,
Tim

This would be on what vehicle ? That looks to have nothing to do with a fuel Pump. Heat shield maybe ? For what idk. You said it was still hanging by 1 bolt. Where was it hanging ? What was it by? Pix would help of said hanging location.

Exhaust hanger. It bolts up onto the frame up against the exhaust. All it would do for me is cause a rattling whenever I hit a bump because the exhaust would hit against it.

Easy to put back on, if you wanted to.

Hanging somewhere under the driver seat, more to the center if the car. I just unscrewed the last bolt and put it in my trunk.

Just line the open square up so if you wanted to unbolt the exhaust you can. There is a bolt that the hole provides access to. It's really not important, I left it off my car because it doesn't fit my tsp y pipe.
