The splash guard is there for aerodynamic AND engine protection reasons. The guard protects the surpentine belt, alternator, A/C clutch, A/C Compressor speed signal sensing system and numerous electrical connections. It also controls airflow through the engine compartment and keeps the compartment MUCH cleaner. It should be in place. Make them replace it. As far as leaks go, I think it serves better to identify leaks by catching them rather than letting them drip on the ground where they may go unnoticed.
