Flex plate/torque converter shield?? 3.6

1722 10
I assume there should be a pressed metal plate covering the bottom of the flex plate and torque converter?
is it the same as a 2.5? (I may have one in the spares box) or 3.6 specific?
Why on Earth that should be missing, I have no idea... slightly worrying tho...

My 2011 3.6 does not have a cover, not sure why.

I purchased it as a used vehicle so I have no reference as to if it had one fitted when new.

The cover would be bolted to the engine, not the transmission, so this would be how all the transmissions look, regardless of engine.
to cover the entire torque coverter that is exposed would require bolts on the transmission side as well it is a large opening

I had just noticed this myself. My flexplate is sticking out of the bottom with nothing to cover it. The gear teeth have some surface corrosion. That kinda sucks.
