You know the aero plates/shields on the underside of the car?

Are these available from the dealer? I lost one in the snow the other day (very wet and heavy...and didn't see the plow line ahead...what a ride, lol).

When I was taking the rest of it off (I still have it, it's torn though), I noticed there wasn't one on the other (passenger) side too. Should there be one there? I bought it used, so if there should be, it wasn't there when I bought it.

tia,
Chris

yes, available from Honda dealer - one on each side - check with the dealer to make sure you get a full set of bolts/nuts to fasten them up

And don't forget that the (3) plates aid in the aerodynamics of the vehicle. "maybe" the gas mileage will suffer. Probably not if all you are doing in around town driving.
The outer plates are supported by the middle aluminum plate. Without this plate the outer plates are unsupported and useless.

The right plate was probably left off to make it easier for oil changes. Looks like someone got lazy!

My opinion.
