I drove over some ice this winter and ripped off the splash guard under my car. Ebay is selling one for $142 shipped....anyone know if can I get it cheaper on here? I have a 2004 Mazda3 sedan. Here's a pic of what I need.

OEM 04-09 Mazda 3 Under Cover Oil Splash Guard Shield

I was thinking of taking mine off to reduce weight and get better gas mileage ;) Make me an offer!

I hope you are joking? That thing only weighs about a pound. You would save more weight by taking a poop! I think that it might actually give you worse gas mileage because it is part of the underbody aerodynamics.

Hence the winky face. I was joking. I was thinking about removing it anyway. Makes oil changes easier too. And I don't live in flooded areas, per above statement. It's AZ. Nothing happens here.

The drivers side area was totally ripped and I used some zip ties to keep it up, which lasted about a month. I have the larger piece in my trunk but it's beyond repair at this point. :angry:

The drivers side piece is gone, it was ripped off during a snowstorm last month and I didn't realize it till days later. There's nothing to weld, but thanks for the offer. :)
