Default Rear rattle - brake splash shield

Been driving around with an annoying rattle coming from the rear driver side wheel (05 TDI Wagon). Took the tyre off to inspect pads/rotors where I discovered what I think is the culprit... the brake splash shield is hitting the rotors...

I pushed/bent it back and noise was gone for a couple of weeks but is back again. Short of replacing the shield or simply removing it, any one else dealt with this and have a simple solution?

Bend it some more. It usually gets deformed at the top when the tire jockey lets the wheel fall and hit it on the way off. You need a 1/4" of clearance all around.
