Assuming aftermarket skid plates that are not a dealer installed option then yes; provided if it is required to perform the warranty work needed. That, or they may charge you labor (not covered by warranty) to remove and reinstall them, but the default position will be to have you remove them which eliminates them having any liability for the skid plates in the future.

It's great to see this information! I added an accessport and intake to my 2018 Wrx because of the differences in drivability. I initially thought I'd have to just count on Subaru's reliability. Even though I trust Subaru products I understand nothing is perfect. Thanks for sharing!

they can't void your entire warranty, but you can have service denial based on the accessport and intake.

The dealers sure like to find any reason to deny work. I had them complain that the window tint caused the door seals to leak. Of course I pushed back immediately and the work is now in progress! Be persistent, that seems to help.

What are your experiences with the AP? I read in a couple places here that some dealers actually recommend using an AP and will actually be on your side when having warranty issues.

The dealers do not have any say in regards to major warranty repairs, SOA handles those. If you would like to keep your engine warranty then do not install an ap.
