Default Timing Belt Cover Gasket???

About a week ago, I had my Impreza in a local shop nearby me to get the timing belt done and was able to pick it up the same day. A few days later, I was working on my engine and noticed a big gap at the top of the timing belt cover. It was missing the upper timing belt cover gasket ($20.00 piece). So I took my car back to the mechanic and showed him. I said, “How come the gasket was taken off but a new one was never put back on?” He said, “Well, I didn’t have any in stock so I just didn’t put one back on.” Does that sound retarded to anyone else??? Now I have to have him tear apart my car to put one back in so I don’t get any leaks in the timing belt area. Will having it “gasketless” for about a week ruin anything, like the timing belt??
Thanks,
Cody

Dude, that is a dry area. No fluids go in there. I was even thinking of just taking mine off becuase it looks cool.

You'll be fine. IIRC, it's just a rubber gasket that is pressed into the cover. but it could be foam. I forgot

maybe i'm thinking about the wrong piece, but there's a gasket on that thing? why? i don't even have the cover on mine, i don't think being "gasketless" will hurt anything

ummm yeah, that's not a good idea, that cover and gasket keep water/snow/etc off the belt to keep it from slipping teeth. If you've taken it off i REALLY rec you put it back on/
