    Default Lower Engine Splash Guard

    Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong section.

    My Vectra doesn't have a "lower engine splash guard" (I think that is the correct term).

    It's a 1.8 55 plate club.

    Were they standard fit?

    Should mine have one?

    Will it cause me any problems not having one?

    I noticed there wasn't one when I was trying to get the lid off my airbox. And thought it seemed strange that there wasn't one especially considering there were chunks of clay/mud over part of the lower engine bay on bits of flat metal (sorry for being non specific, but I am no mechanic). There was even some mud on the fan at the front.

    It looked like the previous owner had got stuck in some mud somewhere. I would have thought the garage would have cleaned it off.

    How much would it cost to get one fitted?

    not sure mate. look under the car. that should give you and indication if there was one.
    the screws are hopeless on them. Mine feel off a couple days after a service. So its back on with cable ties now lol

    I looked under the car, and it doesn't look like anything has snapped off. There may have been one, not certain exactly where it would be secured with the screws though?

    Maybe the screws were dodgy and it fell off.

    its hard to explain without pics but from the edge of your front bumper there is a black plastic surround all the way to the rear of the engine. the cover sits in the middle under your sump. if it aint got the surround i doubt it would of had the cover

    If you mean the engine under tray I think its only the oil burners that have it for noise suppression.

    Indeed, diesel models only - was wondering if it was missing on my 2.8 at first but looking under a couple of others (how sad is that ?!) confirmed it wasn't original equipment !!!

    I remember asking the very same question with my 2.2 petrol some time ago and just to say mine doesn't have it either and as others have said it appears only the diesels have them.
