What can a Dieselgeek Panzer Skid Plate do for me?

  • Give Peace of Mind. The stock belly pan offers no protection against broken oil pans.
  • Save you money. Replacing oil pans, stock belly pans and sometimes complete engines is expensive.
  • Save you time. Have you ever lost an oil pan? It is a time wasting ordeal.
  • Help the environment. Hundreds of gallons of motor oil is spilled on the road every year from broken Audi A4 oil pans.

Installation and removal:

The initial installation of the Panzer Plate takes about 20 minutes and involves installing two large threaded, reusable OE rivnut anchors into the rear subframe with an included rivnut install tool. The other attachments include seven OE Dzus brand ¼ turn steel screws that fit far better than with the factory belly pan. All fasteners for the plate face straight down which makes it easier to remove and install than the factory plastic belly pan. Also, all hardware is rustproof steel hardware; no plastic fasteners are used whatsoever.

Reinstalling the Panzer Plate is as easy as slipping it in from the rear of the car. It slots just above the front spoiler on the outside edge and where the front Dzus screws are. When reinstalling the plate, you just keep a 10mm bolt with fender washer close by and thread it through the plate when it's in position above the spoiler. You then center the plate and run in the 1/4 turn Dzus screws and the two big 10mm bolts with washers. That's it, you're done. There are no more frustrating cheesy plastic screws and receptacles in the fender wells like with the factory plastic belly pan.

Audi A4 Spoiler protection:

We provide you with two self-tapping 6mm screws that allow you to anchor your front spoiler to the aluminum skid plate to prevent unwanted parking curb hooking incidents. Details of the fastening of the front spoiler to the skid plate are given in the install guide here.

Oil Changes:

You will need to remove the Panzer Plate to change your oil as the oil filter is located at the bottom of the engine bay. Not to worry since removal of the Panzer Plate is easier than stock.

Ground Clearance:

The Panzer Plate has as much ground clearance as the stock plastic belly pan. The Panzer Plate weighs in at only 12 pounds. It’s a must-have for any 2002-2008 Audi A4 owners!

Panzer Plate July 9, 2014
Reviewer: Fred from Shannon, Quebec, Canada.  
The Panzer Plate lives up to it's name. It was easy to install and it do protect the engine. I could not stop in time of an object in the road and the plate took the bunt of the damage. Saved the base pan. excellent product. Removed the plate, a little bit of a hammer and the plate was fixed. Thanks.

panzer skid plate September 20, 2013
Reviewer: Jimmy from PA  
If you are driving a lowered audi/vw on less than perfect roads, buy one of these plates. They have saved me a handful of oil pans and quite possibly a couple motors. These are very nice quality, and will really take a lot of abuse.

B6 Panzer plate September 19, 2013
Reviewer: SPMMD from Oswego NY  
After receiving this, I found all hardware needed for the install included, in fact a couple of extra DZUS clips as some of the original were in good condition and could be reused! The machining of the plate itself was right on, if two holes lined up, they all lined up and the install was quite easy as I completed the installation in my gravel driveway using the flattened shipping box to lay on! I used two ramps under the front tires, and 1/2 hr later, done! it would have taken half that time, except I used the epoxy technique for the rivnuts, and made quite a mess! when finished very strong, no vibration or noise, in fact runs more quiet at speed than original. Compared to factory original replacement cost, a far better option.

B6 Install September 19, 2013
Reviewer: JR from Long Island NY  
Overall great product. Took a little bit of muscle to get it to fit right with my Votex front bumper. Once it is on though this thing is TOUGH. I drive on tough NYC roads wtih coilovers for 200 miles a day and the cost of this plate is worth the peace of mind. The nutserts supplied were very easy to install and is the main support for this skid plate. So make sure these are in very securely. Directions were very straight forward and easy to understand. Driven 3000 hard miles with it still on securely. I have not performed my first oil change with this on yet so I will post later for those results.
