So about a week ago I was driving and hit a possum. At the time I thought the damage was just to the fender liner on the driver's side and the lower front grill. This weekend I was doing some maintenance and found that both fender liners were damaged (slightly) and the front splash shield had been cracked and most of the passenger side was ripped off.
How important is the splash shield? Are there any major problems running without?
My car is not lowered and if it matters it is the V6.
