Splash Shield-Under body Engine Cover

Hi everybody!
I ran over a curb and it tore off the metal splash shield. It also took out enough of the mounting surfaces so I need to replace the entire Splash Shield-Under body Engine Cover.

Has anyone done this? Any tips, tricks or advice is greatly appreciated. Any videos or how to diy on this?
Looks like it's a remove and replace so what goes out goes back in (sure)

Thanks!!
Geoff

Happy Holidays everyone.
You are talking about the metal removable aluminum service shield right? This has combination of screws and mostly 1/4 turn screws. About nine or so. I think the screws are in the leading edge and the rest use clip tabs mounted on the plastic cover. maybe So you might need the tabs, 1/4 (or 1/2) turn screws, screws and the shield. For some reason the the screws are Phillips and the quick release are slotted. Your going to have jack it up to see whats missing. You have to see what else was damaged anyway but that area is surrounded by pretty heavy metal so hopefully that's all thats damaged.
Good luck. I feel for you. I hit my rims and about died!

Sorry I left out that yes this is easy to remove and replace. If you change the oil or put in a new motor mount that's what is removed. If you want to see the shield removed you could look at the Boomba motor mount replacement video they have.

Thank you for your reply. it is that cover and the entire plastic one that ends at the exhaust and forms part of the inner fender wells.
Pic attached. I tore the metal plate from its mounts and damaged the edges of the entire cover. The small metal one has no spots to mount onto. I will try to just replace the metal, it may fit onto what's left of the mounts. If not then I need to replace the whole thing.

Yikes! Yeah that's the whole plastic under body shield. That is mostly held by plastic push-in buttons and a few 10mm bolts. You might have to just refasten it with new buttons and use oversize fender washers for the bolts if the plastic is cracked or broken. I don't know about the metal part. Maybe hammer it flat and more washers for bolts.

I see most of the fasteners. I do have to replace the entire shield, it's too damaged to be able to accept the metal insert.
It comes as one piece with the metal pan and plastic cover. Of course it's clipped and fastened to every surface under there. One fastener at a time and I'll get it switched out. Nothing to it but to do it.

I bought it for 105.00 free shipping on ebay. The lowest shipping quote from the online discount part dealers was 86.00 and the highest was 122.00

The car actually drives fine without the metal cover, just a little more road noise. 117 MPH still rock solid as always.

I had to remove mine completely. Driving in excess of 130 mph and hitting road kill in between cities completely annhilated my OEM aluminum "skid plate". and I can't afford to spend over $80 for a replacement. I actually feel much more secure knowing there's not a big metal sheet that could be hanging down underneath my car.

I had the same thing happen to me. What I did was hammer my skid plate to the best of my ability so that it would look somewhat reusable and then I used tech screws to hold it in place. Just make sure to not over tighten so they won’t get striped. I used about 10 hex head screws in total

I have a 2018 EX Hatchback. The same thing also happened to me when I ran over a deer that had just be stuck by another car. If the first car didn't finish it off...mine sure did. Other than dragging part of the deer, I didn't see any damage. The next morning I didn't see that any fluid had leaked out and the car drove fine. A few days later it was time for an oil change. I took it to the Honda Dealer I purchased my car from that does my servicing. When they were finished with the oil change and tire rotation I was told the splash guard was in bad shape and needed replacing. I was given a price of almost $500 for replace it. I told him I was going to do some research. I'm glad I did because I can purchase the part for a lot less. I still have not taken care of the repair because it drives fine and I want to wait until the deer rut in my area is over.
