Default Alternator dust shield missing

Re : '97 SW2, 150kMi

I think the alternator is good, it is labeled:"Remanufactured for Saturn", 96A. The bolt-heads for both fasteners are 13mm. There was no dust cover ... but there is a short/abbreviated section of plastic covering a small (3"X2") portion of the alternator {it is apparently clipped into place, no screw}.

My '96 OEM manual rails about "failures due to foreign debris intrusion" [no concerns then for 'sleeper cells'] .
Shall i ignore the missing dust cover , or procure ? TIA,

T m.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

That dust cover also held in heat and that was worse than the dust. It was eliminated on later models.

There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
