Hi all. I have a 2012 Civic LX manual that has a small piece of plastic dragging on the ground (picture attached). Just a couple questions about it; I'd really appreciate any input.
1. About a week ago, I had both front fender liners replaced from old damage and my front bumper reattached (got in a fight with a parking bumper). I noticed after that work was done that the car was bottoming out easier than before on speed bumps and whatnot. I didn't look under closely enough to see if anything was amiss then (I did glance, and nothing looked too strange), but I'm wondering if they would've been messing with this part for those repairs and not cleaned it up correctly. It could be a coincidence, but the timing makes me wonder.
2. If I just saw that flap off, would it cause any issues? I'm thinking of it either exposing some part of the undercarriage that needs to be protected, or of it catching the wind in a way that eventually pulls the whole thing off. If it does need to be replaced, what would the part number be? I'm finding things on 74114-TR0-A00, but that seems to be aluminum.
