    Default undertray

    just finshed work and had to go under a bridge but it was flooded, but i had to go through, so i did i drove about 2 miles until i hurd a rattle noise, sounded like the car was a bag of nails, i thought my gear box, turn out one part of the under tray had come loose, tried to fix it but couldnt so called the aa hoping they would but he couldnt the thing has broken where the screws go so he took it off, AA bloke said its ok to leave off you dont really need it, is this true?

    the part is only small and had some mesh on, were he was messing was around the front wheel part and front door area, if you know what i mean can you tell me how much it would cost to get a new one or is it ok to leave off

    my cars a diesel by the way


    tbh its stoped my rattling when going over humps

    The under tray is only fitted to diesels for drive by noise regs. Petrol's don't have them fitted.
