I'm considering skid plates even though I don;t go off road too much. Would having skid plates impact the ability to change oil, transmission fluid, etc. Would they have to be taken off to do any routine maintenance?

I have a 2012 3.6R Outback with all three skid plates.

I have to remove the front plate to change oil and the center for the transmission as it is the 5EAT.

Not sure about CVT on the 2.5 Outback.

Removing the plates is relativity easy.

Yes, they need to come off to service whatever they are protecting.
