the peice on the passenger side wheel well(toward the ft. bumper), its like some sort of plastic cover thingy. i dont know what its called. I'm sure some of you know what im talking about. well yea, its broken. liked ripped apart. does that have a major function? can I just take the damn plastic cover thingy out? or, if i need to replace it, how much do you think it is? i hope you guys understand what im talking about

to help (maybe) your bumper corner (on the bumper) light bulb socket is accessable by that plastic thingy. i dont know what to freakin call it damn. uhmm..its like some plastic thing, got like vents on it, towards the front bumper. dammit, i give up...does anyone know if i need it?:confused:

You're talking about the fender well lining. I haven't had the driver's side peice in since the middle of winter. It should be a fairly inexpensive part.

I don't think it would cause any problems if the plastic cover isn't there...But it will let moisture in easier which wil cause rust. Also if you have a CAI you might be more apt to inhale water.

The one on my right side popped off while I was doing 120 and got sucked under my right wheel.. (riiiippppp) lots of smoke and right tire locked up while it was resting on the plastic.... Scary ****.

And the moral is.. Dont do 120 while that plastic is loose!

if your talking about the plastic piece that is underneath the front bumper and extends back underneath the engine somewhat its a splash shield... should only be like $68 and some change @ your local dealer:)

you will have a dirty engine bay though. All the road dirt will filter up through the bolt holes in the wheel well. I took my driver's side off to get more air to my SMIC now that I don't have a SMIC anymore I want it back.
