Plastic piece under/behind front bumper

Can this thing be removed? It looks like it's just a mud/splash guard. My brother parked a little too far forward, and when he backed up a piece of rebar took the bumper off (well the corner).

If it is the cover under the engine, you need to put it back on. It protects the engine from water splashing on it.

several guys run their cars without belly pans and the only problems they have are dirty engine bays but never heard of water actually reaching the engine though...

I have seen a few cars run thru large puddles of water on the road and seize the engine from the cold water hitting the hot engine. Not a 300, older cars back when I was mechanic. I would never run my 300C without the pan under the engine. You never know. They put it there for a reason i am sure.

Great question because since I lowered my car it sometimes rubs when I drive into my drive or when i hit pot holes.Mine is hanging a little but I did wonder if I can remove it without any issues.
