These are for aerodynamics, noise control, and to help keep mud
and salt and grime out of the engine compartment.

I hate 'em :-)

They do make it a pain to do some service including oil changes.
They should be held on by a plethora of fasteners. If it fell off,
it means the last person to put it back didn't use any of them.
It does sort of "snap" into place by itself, but that won't hold
it on at speed.
