Not going to go through all that again just to replace it.

Will it be a problem?

Any comments or suggestions or experiences welcome!
If you have the two separate oil/foam filters probably not. It would seem the plug is mostly to prevent water from becoming free standing in the hole and ultimately leaking into the air box.
