Furthermore, I think it helps keep the water off the block. If you hit a big puddle and that cold water splashes on the hot engine block it could crack!! Talk about a nightmare!!

I took mine off and put it back when I was done working on the car. I used to have a Ford Focus Hatchback lowered 5" on 18s, it was so low that I tore the splash sheilds off of it from bottoming out. When it used to rain, everytime I would turn right the water coming off of my tire would spray onto my serpentine belt causing it to slip. It sucked, and I don't want these types of problems on my bonneville, so everything I take off gets put back on.

I forget which GM exec said it, but it'* something like "Parts not installed cost nothing and never cause warranty problems."

If they put it there, it'* needed. They're auto engineers and you're not.

so put it back,
