    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default Engine undertray / splash guard

    Chaps,

    My CDTI150 has the engine undertray missing..

    Now VX want too much money for one of these in my view - so, are they all the same - or do they differ per engine?

    Cheers

    A

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Just leave it missing mate.

    Mines hanging up in my shed.

    More hassle than good IMO.
    The amount of cars I see hiding a multitude of sins because people's havent seen leaks because of them guards.
    Also theirs a chance water can sit In the tray an cause sub frame to rot quicker.

    Back to your actual question.

    I believe their all same yes as I think it's only the derv models that have them

    I've read they help with the cooling effect for directing air over the engine, could be wrong.

    Yes they help hide leaks from the engine, and yes they are a pain in the backside when it comes to doing an oil change when you only have a jack and axle stands.

    I take mine off completely at oil change time as you can't get the service flap down properly, unless you cut it off.

    Actually they are different on the diesel,s The Dti ,s dont have the full undertray which fills in the area under the headlights where as the CDTi have.

    So mine has had the 'service flap' cut off - so its actully quite neat - and it means I can get to the engine / gearbox all OK.

    Maybe ill leave it then considering the money that they are.

    If I remember correctly, they're there to lower the engine noise? They're not needed and are a pain whenever you want to do anything under the engine.
