Default 2004 Civic SE

Anybody else here with this 4 door civic.

Well, here's my question, I have owned three civics to date and have always
enjoyed them.
Today I was looking at the front tires of my civic and noticed that I could
see through from the wheel well into the the motor compartment of the car
and beyond. I can literally see completely across the car.
Is this normal, I'm pretty sure that both of my prior civics completely
covered the whole wheel well.
My worry is that the tires will eventually throw snow and ice into the
engine compartment and perhaps cause some damage.
Thanks

Yeah, the older civics have the wheel wells covered. I haven't seen the new
civics so I can't tell you if it's normal or not. In any case, you have
valid concerns and if I were you, I'd check with the dealer and listen to
their side of the story. Might be a defect. Anyone to confirm with their 04
civic SE's?

dude the wheel well insert is there to protect the engine compartment from
mud and loads of water splashing up into it go to the dealer and ask why
they are not there

I went to the dealer and he told me that it was perfectly normal.
Saw the cars on his lot and also those in the showroom and all the cars
there did not have that protection.
I think that Honda is inviting trouble by failing to install those inserts.
Hope Honda knows what it is doing!
Thanks
