I know the narrative here by some is this has to be a defect in design by Honda or the spash guard was not properly replaced after an oil service.

So.. this last week.. a friend of mine.. who drives an Audi A4... hit standing water on the road at speed. Clearly it was not deep water, nor was the speed particularly high, because the A4 never lost steering control in the incident. That said.. the spash guard on the underside of the A4 was torn away by the water impacting it underneath.

TLDR: don't hit standing water at speed and expect your splash guard to not be damaged to the point of needing replacement.

Maybe your friends splash guard was improperly installed as well.🤷‍♂️ We just drove 450 miles the day after Thanksgiving in rain, sometimes heavy rain, 70-80 mph on I-44. Splash guard looks fine because I properly re-install it.

Front of splash guard goes above the plastic, rear of splash guard goes below the plastic. If it's not installed exactly like that......it's comin' off.
