    Diesels should have one fitted but if its come loose or lost some frame fixing points then it was probably taken off/lost whilst driving. Mine has a self tapper as one corner doesn't have the frame fixing for some reason

    IIRC they were only fitted for the EU noise regulation

    although mine is a xectra the cover was taken off a couple of years ago by the mechanic when i asked him if it was broken and did i need to replace it his response was,are you planning on going to france no i said, then don,t bother getting one, professional advice there, so i think he got fed up taking it off for the annual service which i did every 6 months then as i was doing a few miles every year, when i looked on line for one they where quite cheap but i still don,t have one under the engine and its passed a lot of mot,s since he removed it woulkdn,t be surprised if it wasn,t propped up in his garage waiting to sell it back to me

    Heard this before, i would loved to have been in the room when the numbskulls decided that the engine is too loud let's wrap it in water soaked pressed cardboard!
