Q: Do Ireally need the lower engine splash guard? on 2006 Volkswagen Jetta

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The cover came off and was put back on and then damaged by ice during late spring snow strm and could not be repaired. The replacement cost is$150.00 and I wondered if it was a necessity. I have a diesel engine.

In my opinion, I do not think you really need it. Its just there to water or other liquids that you may pass over from splashing into the engine compartment and other parts under the hood. I don't have my splash guard on my vehicle cause it was damaged and I'm not having any problems with it being off.
