The plastic liner or the fabric bits? Also, how much damage are you talking about?

just cosmetic


the inner wheel well plastic



basically this part came loose and damaged my A/C (this explains why I have a leak) and it stopped working correctly after this happened .

I really want to get my A/C working so I can be in a winter wonder land in the summer
the compressor works great bone chilling 28F.


as it touched moving parts(the belt)



Chevy Impala 00-11 Right Splash Shield Inner Fender Liner
i think this is the part

The fender liner keeps dirt and debris from going up into the engine area and helps keep the insulation up towards the firewall dry. On the belt side it could very well keep gravel from getting sucked into the belt and ruining the belt, a pulley, or even a component itself. I would replace it.

Without seeing the damage (and the cheap price of the part), I'd just go ahead and replace it.

A little off track here, but is your brake line really that close the CV joint or is that an illusion?

Did you try Rock Auto or a junk yard? A junk yard would be cheap if not free. With the belt & filter there, I wouldn't mess around around. Not to mention every mud puddle splashing in there.

Yeah, I didn't realize you had nothing in there. Get that sucker replaced ASAP.
