Under Tray Bolts

Just as a precaution against siezing, I took the oppertunity of taking them out and coating the threads with copper grease. All went fine except for one of the T30 bolts on the N/S. It just turns! I rekon the bolt the other side of the panel/subframe has become detached.

Another niggle to get sorted under warranty. Still waiting on a pinch sensor coming from Italy!!!!!

And why could Alfa not put a wee inspection hatch on the under tray to get to the sump nut like I have had on previous cars!!!!! Would save removing the tray to do oil changes. Removing it looks a PITA!

The undertray will fall off soon so no worries with inspections there.
