Could use some help

Ok so I got under the jeep (1993 2.5 wrangler) to check on a leak and looked up to see my flywheel. I'm no mechanic but shouldn't there be a cover of some sort on this? Could I really have been driving all this time and missed this? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There's a thin sheet of metal that is supposed to go up there, some people call it an inspection shield because you can just up bolt it and take a quick look at your flywheel. if you look up about halfway on the sides of the bell housing you should see where it fastens up

Actually it looks like your missing the bottom bolts which will hold it in

Thanks for the quick response, should be an item I can get from the dealer? Any special instructions or simply a cover for the flywheel? Probably a good idea to replace it before I drive it too much huh?

There is actually a dust cover. To install one you have to remove the starter to get it hung and yes it is held in place by four bolts.

Here is one good price

Thanks to everyone for their help,I was able to get a used flywheel inspection plate at a Jeep junkyard for $25. Putting it on today and feeling a lot better about it. Time to see what's next... JEEP, Just Empty Every Pocket
