underbody plastic

my underbody plastics are broken so they are not attached

to my front bumper now, and whenever i go over 60 mph, my

underbody plastics are just start hitting the ground, so

the front end of them are MESSED-UP!!!

i used so ZIP TIES to try to connect them to my front bumper, but it looks ugly.

my question is "can i just take off the underbody plastics?"

or "how much is it to fix or replace them?"

Yea you can take them out if you want...they are just there to hold back water and debris... grin But if you can i'd try to keep them

what do those people do if they change their bumpers to aftermarkets such as Veilside and Biltz?

do you still keep the underbody plastics?

I dont know if I would take them off because they have to be there for a reason...I had the exact same problem and it ended up costing me about $250 angry if I remember right...You'll just have to decide if you think they're necessary enough to pay about that much.

$250 to fix? or to raplace the whole thing with a new one? at the dealership?

I would try to keep them on if possible... they do keep debris out of your engine, and they help keep good pressure in front of your radiator for better cooling. If you have to replace them, they're gonna run you right around $300 brand new from the dealer (i know, this is a common probhlem) Just be glad that your fender liners are alright. I have to replace both of mine...$90 EACH

actually, the plastic itself is only 63, adding the toyota-specific clips (none of the generic ones fit) bumps it up to 90 Thanks Toyota!!

If you're gonna spend $250, might as well get the c-one underbody panel.

Its not the plastics fault. It was the shit install of the aftermakert bumper that fucked them up in the first place.
