The lower engine splash shield does exactly that, it protects the bottom of the engine from road debris, water and snow when driving in inclement weather. In order to perform service work such as an oil change you will need to remove the lower engine splash shield to access the oil pan drain bolt. In this tech article we will show you how to remove your lower splash shield.

In order to remove your lower splash shield and to perform service work underneath the car you will need to lift and support the front of your vehicle. See our tech article on lifting and supporting your vehicle for further instruction.
