I BELIEVE THE LOWER HEAT SHIELD COVER FELL OFF. IS IT NECESSARY?
2003 Acura TL
Hello there. My girlfriend drives a 2003 Acura 3.2 TL. I believe the lower heat shield [cover] has rusted and fallen off (looks like it is part number 18181-P0G-A00; metal casing with slight venting). Does this actually need to be replaced, or can the car survive without it? I looks like the bolt holes have just rusted through.
Looks just like the part seen here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/GENUINE-HONDA-ACCORD-ODYSSEY-COVER-LOWER-18181-P0G-A00-/320624341174
It's there solely as a fire retarder. like if you drove over tall dry grass or some flammable liquid splashed onto it. both pretty rare events. and still no guarantee of a fire. does not effect vehicle performance or reliability.
