    Do y’all know those plastic shields inside the front wheel wells? Has anyone had the opportunity to replace them? I’m going to have to replace mine and I wonder how hard it is and where can ya even get a replacement?

    I tore mine out while driving and purchased a new one via RockAuto. If I remember correctly, it was $30-$35ish for the shield and my mechanic charged me $30 to put it in, took him about 20 mins to tear out the remainder of the old one and install the new one including finding new bolts that fit. I watched him do it and it didn't seem difficult.

    It's just tedious work aligning all the holes for the plastic pop pins and bolts.
