Timing belt covers

Are they interfering with anything in their current conditoin? As far as protective shields; they are better in their current shape than none at all If they arent harming your belts or rubbing on any pullies I'd just leave them untill you find a nice junkyard set.

That being said, I pretty much need to get a new set also. When taking the side covers off, the bolts all stripped out, so I got to use the screwdriver/prying to get them off... grr...

Realize they are covers - they don't have to be pretty, they just have to cover the belts.

i think it's most beneficial if you're doing the work to your own car, makes timing belt replacement super quick and super easy. if you don't, i wouldn't worry about it unless they're in the way somehow. i've seen them rubbing belts before if they are contorted or deformed enough.
