Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and same with my new truck 2020 tundra TRDpro

Few days ago some rodent chewed on the foam block under the throttle body on the top of engine bock, up front. So I pulled out the remainder and now I think I should replace it. As it appears that it is impossible to replace it without removing some parts I am debating if it is ok to leave it out?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thank you.
