I just got my 07 sti swap running this past week, but discovered the horribly inconvenient fact that I bent the dust shield that covers the opening underneath the clutch and flywheel. I used a pry-bar to bend it out of the way of the rotating assembly, but I'm not happy having an exposed clutch and flywheel, and worrying that a little pebble could disable my car and cause damage. I'd hate to pull the motor for a stupid dust shield, but...
Is this shield replaceable? Should I replace it? Anyone know the part #?
Should I ghetto rig some home-made dust shield?
