    My 2009 G5 GT wasn't equipped with a shield under the engine or trans oil pans. My gravel driveway has a high center and occasionally, I'll hear scraping especially after a heavy snow fall. Checking underneath, I see scrap marks on the engine cradle and minor scratches on the engine oil pan. The 06 GTO I had and my wife's Volvo have shields under the engines and wondered why not my car.
    I Googled G5 engine shields and found one available from wholesalegmparts.com. Other GM online stores said they don't carry it. GM Pn 25929131 $79.03. Shield and mounting bolts included along with installation instructions.
    Easy install if you have ramps. Be sure to get a 9/32 drill bit for metal. Engine cradle metal is heavy duty.

    Yep. I added one of these to my 09 Cobalt SS. Does a great job of keeping the rocks out.

    We're you able to get both front mounting bolts installed? I couldn't mount the passenger front one as the bracket there was placed different from the driverside. The bolt the bracket mounts was in the way.

    I didn't have any issue getting it to mount. Of course I drilled all five holes in the appropriate spots. Next time I'm under the car, which should be this weekend, I'll get a shot of the holes.
