Does the rear bumper fender have a protective function to protect the car body from mud damage?

The rear bumper fender, often called a "scuff plate" or "fender", is a decorative piece installed under the rear bumper of a car. Its main function is to protect the vehicle body from damage by mud, rocks or other debris.
Fenders are usually made of flexible materials such as plastic or rubber and have a certain degree of flexibility and impact resistance. When the car encounters muddy or uneven roads or passes through puddles while driving, the fenders can prevent mud and water from splashing onto the car body, thereby preventing mud and water from causing damage to the car body.
In addition, fenders can also reduce the amount of debris on the road from splashing onto vehicles or pedestrians behind, thus providing certain safety protection.
However, it should be noted that the main function of the fender is still to protect the body from damage by mud and debris, but not to completely prevent the body from being polluted. Especially in poor road conditions, such as driving in heavy mud or rain, the fenders may not be able to completely stop mud and water splash.
In addition, the fender design and function will vary between different models. Therefore, when purchasing or replacing fenders, it is recommended to refer to the vehicle's manufacturer's guidance or consult a professional auto parts dealer to ensure the suitability and performance of the fenders.
All in all, the rear bumper fender has a certain protective function, which can protect the car body from damage by mud and debris, and also plays a certain safety protection role. However, under certain circumstances, such as poor road conditions or large amounts of mud, the protective effect of fenders may be limited.
