You can say that again lol. Same here.
Had an 07 WK that i had done the samething to, and just removed it altogether thinking it served no purpose other than keeping the engine bay clean. Unfortunately, after leaving the car wash the other day i learned otherwise. It also covers your starter and it electrical connectors from the outside elements. Long story short.. i had found that my starters electrical was soaked from the underbody blast wash. To bad i had to find this out after gasing up. Where it would not start back up.
But, what you said does not surprise me. Along the yrs seems it seems 8 out of 10 WK i pass down the road i've noticed one side of the shield hanging down. From what i assume had the same broken bolt issue.
It was a poor design choice by Chrylser.
But with this issue on so many WKs you would think they had come up with some kind of solution, or there would be info on this part out there. .. But i cant seem find it lol .
