Question about Volkswagen Passat
Hello! The piece that you are referring to is called an undercarriage cowl. It's sole function is to provide a shield for the bottom-mounted engine components from road debris, dirt and grime. To answer your question - yes, you can drive the car after removing this piece. However, I would recommend that you pick up a coupld of retainer screws/clips from any major auto parts retailer, and install them to hold the cowl properly in place. They are a very common item and are extremely inexpensive. I would not recommend driving the car for any extended period of time without that cowl in place.
Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!
