Volkswagen's oil pans are made of a paper-thin cast aluminum that is easily cracked by many objects such as road debris, manhole covers and speed bumps. While your car may be at stock height, there is only approximately 4 inches of ground clearance with your oil pan. If you are lowered from stock height, there is very little room for error when negotiating an object in your path. Here is some information on this Evolution Aluminum Skid Plate for those of you that haven't seen it before.

  • The plate is 5052 grade aluminum and is 4.8mm (.191 inches) thick.
  • Two Strengthening Ribs have been pressed into the plate thus doubling the strength of the skid plate.
  • Protects your cars oil pan, a/c pump, radiator, transmission and plastic side skirts.
  • 98% cut oil hole for TDI's, you finish the cuts and can order the bolt on cover here: Hex Oil Cover
  • Bolts to the frame with 6 steel rivet-nuts.
  • Never rusts.
  • Weighs 17 pounds (21.3 including hardware).
  • Maximum amount of ground clearance possible provided.
  • One hour install.
  • The most user friendly rivet-nut installation tool comes with every kit.
  • Easy one minute modification to your plastic side skirts.
  • Our kit comes with two 10 gauge powder coated steel front mounting brackets.
  • The skid plate also acts as a stress bar at the rear for improved handling and has open slot holes at the back for easy installation.
  • Comes with two insulating washers to act as a barrier preventing electrolysis.
  • Shipped to your door step in a box as a complete kit. No other attachments need to be purchased.
  • Draft/Design by: EVOLUTION IMPORT INC.
  • CNC Machine Manufactured.

A detailed easy to follow, step by step guide is only located on our website and not included in the kit. The Install Guide for your kit is: Atlas Install Guide

Note: There could be surface scratches on the skid plate during manufacturing, handling or shipping which won't compromise the usefulness of the product. Please note that we won't warranty a skid plate for surface scratches as the skid plate is going to get scratched immediately after installation.

Oil Changes:

This skid plate will need to be removed in order to gain access to the oil filter and drain plug. Removal of the skid plate for oil changes is very quick and easy taking 1-2 minutes. Only the bottom four 10mm bolts need to be removed and the skid plate drops right down and off of your VW. For TDI diesels you can finish the cuts in the skid plate for the Hex Oil Hole and purchase the oil cover separately to seal up the hole. The best tool to finish the cuts is with a Jigsaw however if you don't own one this tool is cheap and works perfect: Keyhole Saw

5 of 5 You need this February 2, 2021
Reviewer: Peter from AB Canada  
Our first Jetta TDI had the stock skid plate on it.  My wife bottomed out on our nasty gravel road and I had to jack the car up and do some serious work (in situ) to remove skid plate as bits had stuffed up into engine bay.  Alternator belt etc.. looked ok and road was soft enough that oil pan was fine.  Thought we were ok.  Three weeks later timing belt went.  Think it got damaged.  
Next TDI wagon had an evolution slid plate.  Very happy with that as car was hitting gravel all the time until I got a lift kit installed.  Got a Golf after that one and easily moved the skid plate over with hardware from Evolution.  
They are not infallible, but maybe the new Atlas would have saved us when my wife bottomed out at 60km/hr on a raised manhole cover.  That cracked the oil pan even with the plate and also damaged the front suspension on one side. I imagine without the skid plate it could have been a lot worse.

5 of 5 Super-duty piece! February 9, 2016
Reviewer: Jesse Postill  
Installed your skidplate yesterday on my 06 2.5 Beetle. I watched your install video and as you say it goes on in about an hour. Fits nicely and is a very rugged unit! My car has the full Eibach suspension package and sits about 1.5" lower than stock. Already lost the factory plastic so your skid plate was a no-brainer. I feel a lot more confident now blasting down the road. Great product guys!!
