    I replaced the cracked engine motor mounts last weekend on my F430 Spider.
    Bad engine vibration at idle is gone!

    Question for the experts. And I am sorry I am not very family with what this is.

    I noticed there is no cover for this exposed area with gears showing.
    My question is:

    What is this?
    Is there supposed to be a cover there?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I read the 430 has no cover. Mine doesn't have one either.

    All F430 have no cover... Very weird but true !!
    On the other hand, the 360 all have cover...

    Thanks for chiming in and for confirming the F430 has no cover for that area.

    Sincerely appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Well that is very interesting indeed that the 360's have cover but not our F430's.......

    I wonder why Ferrari decided to let our flywheels open and without covers.....

    Yea I went a little nuts when I saw that it was missing. Spent about an hour trying to find one until I read they didn't have one.

    Thanks again.

    You just saved me 1 hour, not counting frustrations and worrying if the previous owner lost it and didn't replace it.

    FYI, the ring gear teeth on the flywheel's edge are where the starter engages to crank the engine...

    they probably figured that the resin bottom cover will do the job. maybe, or worse, they forgot to incorporate it in the designing phase.
