Customer Question

Hi I have an older mercedes clk 430 convertable. The front lower sweep about 2 and 1/2 inches in size below the bumper is very low to the ground. I've had it replaced twice from misjudging those little cement strips in parking places. Question. Do they serve a purpose for the car's mechanical integrity? Can I leave it off? It doesn't seem to visibly change the appearance if you didn't know it should be there.
Thanks so much for your help.

Hi Christy, my name is***** lower sweep is mainly cosmetic and serves no purpose. They can be removed without affecting the mechanical integrity of the vehicle.

Let me know if you need anything else.
