The plastic peice that hangs below your bumper is a "Airdam". This helps induce airflow through the Radiator and Intercooler, by creating a Vaccum of air behind the Airdam. Its not there to tell you when you are about to scrap something. Though it is very easily damaged. Some people have taken them off. Some of the cars didnt even have them installed from the dealership.

I say leave it on till it breaks. No harm No Foul.

Hmm.. Not too sure how that could be? Taking off the front fascia is very easy. There is a "How-Too" somewhere on the forums. I thinks its only like 4-6 screws. You can try to take it off and see if theres something bent or broken.

Do you mean the line/joint by the head light, where the Fascia meats the Front Quarter Panel? Just trying to get a mental image off it?

take it off, its just to warn you before you hit somthing with your bumper and assist in getting air into the radiator. i had the guys at the dealership take mine off before i bought the car. havent had any problems, dont think you will either.

Then you should most probably take off the front bumper.

REMOVAL
(1) Remove splash shield attaching screws.
(2) Remove fasteners attaching air dam to crossmember
(Fig. 1).
(3) SRT-4 vehicle remove four attaching screws
(Fig. 2).
(4) Disconnect fog lamp wiring harness, if
equipped.
(5) Remove nuts attaching front bumper fascia to
bottom of fender flange. (Fig. 3), and (Fig. 4).
6) Remove fascia from vehicle.
(7) SRT-4 vehicle remove the fascia to crossmember
upper blockers from the fascia (Fig. 5).

Thats the removal instructions direct from the manual. Taking off the front bumper is a easy, once you do it, it wont take you longer then 10 minutes to complete.
