    This flat sheet of plastic painted the body color, located below th
    radiator has been evidently engineered too low to the ground. I
    frequently scrapes going over many types of inclines or declines.
    The sound is irritating and distressing. There are already man
    scratches on the painted surface of this plastic part.
    The head of the service dept. at my dealership I believe found thi
    amusing and could especially when I asked if there was a flatter exi
    to the parking lot then the one I scraped on the way in. I was tol
    the plastic is on springs and can take a beatng
    Can this part be replaced with one that allows more ground clearance?
    What would be the problem in totally removing it? (I've heard coolin
    problems could develop?
    Has anyone else experienced this kind of nuisance and could shar
    their solution if any

    Why not take it off?
    I've had mine off for 6 years because it fell off and have had no problems
    and gained ground clearance.

    I also had mine off on a '94 and it did cause overheating while on long
    trips, city traffic had no effect. If I remember correctly, the air dam is
    placed fwd of the radiator, different than the ION. The lower air deflector
    is attached on the bottom of the radiator of the ION and is designed to
    directly scoop air into the radiator. It does sit low, but then again, not
    much lower than most sport-type cars. You can try removing it, but I would
    carefully monitor your water temps afterwards.
