Plastic Guard Underneath

In the weekend, my honday prelude was reversed into a ditch. Underneath is this plastic guard of some sort, and it is now cracked. I dont know anything about cars!!! I was told i can remove it, but i am worried to because i have been told that when it is removed you cannot drive over grass because of the risk of it catching alight with heat from your car. What does this guard do? and what will happen if i remove it?
Thanks!

Re: Plastic Guard Underneath

it just keeps water and debris off the bottom of your engine... but you really will be ok with out it. Your exhaust could also start a fire if you parked it in tall grass,so that plastic cover alone isnt going to prevent anything. Plenty of people are rolling around without them.

On my 99 it does seem to provide some stability for the front bumper so that may be the best reason to leave it on.
