    Default 306 sump guard (do I need it?)

    The plastic sump guard on my 306 is disintegrating.
    I've already attempted to reaper it twice and now i think its gone beyond reaper.
    The only reason I haven't removed it yet is because supports the side covers in the wheel arches.
    How important are the side covers? Can I remove the lot?
    Has anyone done this? Have you had any problems?
    While were on the topic, has anyone found a alternative to the original part? (as its obscenely expensive)

    early ones don't have an engine one. Just wheel arch ones. So I assume if your worried about the side ones just put some early ones on.

    I've removed the guard for now (and from the look of all the cracks in it, it won't be going back on), but so far I've had no problems.

    I found this on service box and found a Pic on ebay, (unfortunately can't bring it into Australia).
    It's seems to be an optional extra that fits all 306's.
    It's hard to tell from the parts diagram if it's meant to go on its own, but I would think that it dose, and since it has no provision to support the engine shields in the wheel arches I'd say they are fine on there own.

    Has anyone seen one of these on Australia or do you have it fitted to your car?
