    Default Strap hanging under car

    Hi... I have what appears to be a long strap under car that is hanging down..

    best way to describe it is it looks like a long material strap, it looks like it is fastened at one end to the plastic shield type thing under engine and then it looks like it fastens again about half way along the car.. it looks like it is sagging in the middle.

    . does anyone have any idea what it could be..

    i cant get a pic at mo as wife out at work in the car....

    Maybe just the handbrake cable? Is it hanging down in the middle or off to 1 side?

    Could you have run over a luggage strap that was lying on the road? I think you're going to have to get underneath and try and remove it to see what it is.

    Thats what i was thinking, but it is actually fastened to the plastic shield type bit, where the plastic shield is bolted to the car the strap is fastened using that same bolt.... think ill get under car this weekend and investigate a bit more....

    It does look like a luggage strap..
