2007 Camry LE: Missing Exhaust Manifold Cover?


Just purchased a new 2007 Camry LE last week and I love it. I noticed at the dealership that some Camry’s randomly have an exhaust manifold cover attached to the front of the engine. Mine did not come with a cover. I was told thats how the cars ship from the factory. Seems strange to me. Any thoughts?

Below is a picture I found showing the cover: http://www…linder.jpg


I doubt they will sell a new car without the cover, sounds fishy. Call another dealership and check if the story is true, if not go back and request one. Better yet tell them you might burn your hand soon!
