G25X Splash Shield (Tray Under Engine)

Postby Gold Digger » Fri Jan 01, 2021 12:53 pm

So, in changing out the o ring on the oil cooler today, I have found that my splash shield is in pretty horrible shape. Several of the holes for the screws are broken and the washer on the retainer bolt doesn't hold the shield (I know, use a bigger washer) and it looks like the flap to access the oil filter has been ripped off at some point.

I know there are always those that say, "Take it off!. I did," however, I want to keep this as nice looking as possible and want to get a new one.
I've searched Rock Auto but they didn't have one. I did find one on CARiD's website for not too bad a price.

The brand is K-Metal and it looks pretty accurate as it has the hatch on it for the oil filter.

Anyone had any experience with this particular company?

^^^
It is a big mistake to drive without that shield.
It prevents rain water and puddles from screwing up your electrical connections.

Does it fit after you bought it?
I wish to replace mine too.

I replaced mine with a TBW aluminum splash shield. More money but fits great and tucks up higher giving me more clearance.
