3rd oil change today at 20%, 24,143 miles, without the "splash guard" getting in the way. Took about 15 minutes to do. I was able to reach the filter and drain plug w/o lifting the car. Yes, it's just that easy! Sorry, no drama.

I've done multiple mis-focused headlights with the handyman's secret weapon.
And they lasted.

So this thread made me crawl underneath and check.
Happy to report my splash shield is intact and tightly attached to the underbody.
I bought the car pre-owned, it now has 22,000kms on the odometer and it has had several oil changes done (at Honda service as well as Subaru dealer where I got it from).
I guess they were competent enough not to damage anything and I have luckily not ran over any dead or live objects as of yet, so that must have helped, lol.

in front of the splashguard...I am about to get on my senior citizen back again to
do an oil change in the gravel with the fire ants. For kicks I measured the distance
from the rubber guard to the ground: 4 INCHES.

I then measured my forearm at it's thickest point: ditto.

No wonder I hit dead fish.
