Default STi swap done and runnig BUT clutch/flywheel dust shield issue

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?

Any suggestions?

I would probably replace it for running in the wet, debris, etc as you mentioned. It's probably not critical but...............a wet clutch disc. I know it has a slit in it.

Is it possible to salvage the one you have? Beat it into shape?

I forgot to put mine back on . I looked and thought it would be difficult but doable with everything assembled. I know the 10mm head bolts are back above the crossmember, but I still think it's possible. gearwrench. I'll try tonight as I'm bored with other things on the car.

I may have an extra one, I'd have to look when I get home. Assuming they're identical.

It is replacable, I do not know a part #

If all else fails......duct tape.

I'm sure in this forum alone you could find a spare. I'm putting mine on and I don't even really DD the car.

Thanks for the reply mccainxx. I actually just ran to the local suby dealership and ordered a new shield for around 20 bux. I probably could have just bent it back, but i doubt it would still do its job properly, because I think I mangled it pretty good. My RSTi is my daily driver, so I don't want to take any chances...

I'm going to attempt to just undo the motor mounts and hoist the motor and tranny an inch or two to install the new shield. I refuse to pull the whole motor out to replace that cheap little bastard piece of sheet metal. I don't think the new part will arrive till the end of the week, but I'll post an update this weekend when I attempt to slap it in.

You just bumped a 3 year old thread so the OP probably won't see this. What year, make, model do you have?

The part number for the Impreza is: 30216AA020 For the following dates:

'00, September — '02, May
'02, April — '02, December
'02, October — '04, March

But, if you put in a 6-speed make sure you get one for an STi. The 5-speed shield will rub the flywheel.

Seriously? A 3 year old thread about a stupid useless part? I throw those things in the trash, they are pain in the ass.
