Default Civic wheel area

Please excuse my lack of knowledge. We just got a 2005 Civic-and when you
look at the tire from tire level, you can see into the engine. My husband
says there is a piece of metal/plastic that should go here. The dealer
says we can come look at the other civics to see if they are the same way
(the dealership is 1 hour away). If youhave any suggestions, they would
be most appreciated.

That's because in this latest generation of Civic, Honda moved the steering
rack up from its former location, and then had to make a hole through the
inner fender for it. Prior generations had the steering rack about in line
with the lower control arm, so it was below the inner fender.

It's normal and there is no plastic cover.

And yeah, I though it was a bit odd too, when I first saw it.

Civic and RSX (Acura) are like that. It is normal. Don't worry
about it.
