OK, how about a new question? One of the ribs of my sump guard took a hit and is now rubbing on my sump. I loosened one side of the front and slipped in a 1/4 inch piece of plastic as a spacer. It's not rubbing now. My question is the steel mild enough to bang out the dent with a hammer if I take the whole thing off? I was worried to have the guard off the car for too long, but after reading this thread, I'm not worried anymore. I'm going to take it off and examine it, but the SF Bay Area has many potholes, speed bumps and generally bad roads, so I'll put it back on. So how easy is it to re-shape?
