Hey everyone. Thanks for the add. Question for you all. My 2017 hrv I bought used is missing the undercarriage protector plate. I ordered one and it came. Problem is all the push rivets are missing. I went to local Honda dealer and they couldn't find any part numbers for the push rivets. Any one know the parts that I need? Thanks for any help.

It is an AWD, so they don't come with an Undercarriage protector? I'm just worried about all the salt and contaminants getting up under there since I live in New England. we get snow and they salt the roads.Thanks guys!

I purchased a replacement online and did not know that AWD version didn't originally have one. No wonder why there were no clips under the car. I went to the auto parts store and got a bunch of push rivets, but they seemed incorrect. They were not holding or didn't line up. Wonder why they don't come factory on AWD versions. Not like hrv owners are going to need the clearance going off road. I'd rather the protection of under car protection. As it is it looks as though it would have to be removed anyways when doing an oil change as there is no access point in the plate for the oil filter.

They usually ask for VIN number before processing your order so you dont get the wrong part. The part is not listed for AWD.

The cover will not protect any thing other than for aerodynamic.

Lot of bad info here. There is an AWD front engine cover for AWD. Mines came with one, from dealership. It fell off, and if you want to order a new one you need to order the whole assembly, which is 180. Online catalog says not applicable for cover shield only, because it comes only in a set for awd. Even the parts people wat the honda dealership didn't know, but if you ask enough, the experienced people know. Also it does protect your engine bay. My engine bay is filthier and has a lot of water going into engine bay during rain which cant be good for the electronics and accessories and everything.

I have a 2021 honda hrv awd sport and it does not have the front shield...Honda parts book at the dealer also shows no front shield for the awd...He showed it to me on the computer.

If you want to install one...there are also aftermarket replacements online...Does the standard shield fit the AWD or is there a specific part number for it...also will the standard shield fit the AWD model????

What year and country? In the US first Gen and I believe refreshed models do not have a full under motor cover like the FWD does.

Honestly I don't know what would need to be modified for the AWD to take a FWD cover as mine is already FWD. I assume there are transmission parts that hang down and would need to cut the cover to fit around. It's a mainly plastic cover with metal backing, so easy to cut. Maybe the mounting points are not there?

I have a HR-V 2022 Sport AWD and I am curious why there is not a cover to protect things .. The vehicle is going to be driven in all weather situations. Can something get wrecked from hard snow, salt and water? Your thoughts?

Much ado about nothing. It is not an armor plate. :)

It is mainly for noise reduction and fuel economy. It is pain in the butt if you change your own oil. No one here had their undercarriage wrecked due to lack of the undercover,

Nearly 6 years into this car existing, I have yet to see someone complain of salt water damage on their AWD that the cover would have protected. As others have said don't worry about it, it's a pain to work around and only possibly helps fuel mileage.

It's not a 'pain' to install, doesn't need modification. Source threaded clips and stainless fasteners yourself. Cross-bars are different for the two-wheel-drive vs. the awd version. Therefore, the shield doesn't snuggle up properly at the rear edge. I use cable ties or wire to fasten it there... easy to fish the wire through, twist it well, and done. Oil changes aren't every three thousand miles, you know, so I don't consider it difficult to remove. I posted pictures here a few years ago... don't know where they are. I don't want slush and salt or brine and whatever splashing up underneath.
