I took the splash guard off at 50K miles. Has 185KMiles on right now
Didn't notice eitherThat's what I figured I do. My concerns were if it were going to affect gas mileage or if it'll lead to the under carriage corroding and what not
@Fanj that looks like good quality exhaust wrap, but the looseness of the wrap makes me think it was added "after" the plastic engine undercover melted. It's very difficult to wrap headers after they've been installed! :icon_eek:Aftermarket headers usually require wrapping, as they don't have a heat shield installed like the stock headers. If the header isn't stainless steel, I wouldn't recommend wrapping, as that will trap moisture on the pipe, causing it to rust & fail.
If it's the plastic engine undercover that's melting, you could remove the diaper & run that way. No diapers on either of our Foresters.
