2005 Camry LE 2.4

Could someone please let me know what that aluminum shield is called that is in front of the engine? It is as big as day. It is located between the block and the radiator. I've tried googling it and youtubing a diagram, but cannot find the name. Tks!

If I can find out what it is i can then find out how to remove it as it needs to be refinished.

The metal that the radiator attaches to is the radiator support. Usually it's steel.
The only other thing is the A/C condenser that looks like a thinner radiator and the radiator itself.

Nothing could be completely solid as air needs to flow thru to the engine.

Only thing in that area like that would be the heat-shield on the exhaust manifold.

Thanks....The wire I see coming out of the heatshield is probably the upstream oxygen sensor? Can the heatshield be removed without taking the sensor out?

The wire would be connected to the sensor with a plug.
On that vehicle..... it looks like there is a +/- 1' lead attached to the sensor with a plug at the end of the cable.
