    Default Crunching sound while reversing

    While reversing into the driveway last night I heard a rather nasty sounding crunch. I thought I had run over something lying on the ground. Gets the car parked and walked to the lowered part of the kerb at the road and found the cover plate for the bottom of the engine lying there in two bits and some smaller bits of plastic.
    I take it that the back part of it has come undone and its caught on the kerb on ther way back.
    This is going to be a pain to fix without a set of ramps.

    I did think about not refitting it but it does help to keep the crap out of the engine compartment.
    Thanks for the link to ebay. That might come in very handy.
