    Default Under Engine tray

    Hi guys, just a quick question, apologies If this is not under the correct heading!

    I need to replace the tray under my engine... Same old story had it serviced, lazy garage didn't replace the screws etc...

    Long story short, I want to get a second hand one as a new one is huge money but I'm struggling to find a facelift that's being broken locally, I have found a pre-facelift and was wondering if the trays are the same on both??

    Cheers in advance!

    Same problem here. There is one guy on ebay who has one from a breaking car, but he is asking 80 quid for the whole tray and another 15 for shipping. All I want is the middle section, but no dice.

    TBH I wouldn't bother replacing it, all it does is trap dirt, stop you from spotting oil leaks and make servicing more difficult

    As said above don't bother replacing it its a pain removing it every time you need to do anything - once you've had it off a couple of times (so to speak) the fasteners fail and it only collects dirt and rubbish. Let the engine breath drive without it
