Does Your Car Have An Engine Undertray?

I wouldn't be without mine but I was wondering how many have been damaged/removed/lost and not replaced.

I have thought about an upgarde, but I'm not sure how much good it would do except make a hell of a racket anytime the car grounded.

Re: Does Your Car Have An Engine Undertray?

I've had the same plastic undertray on the car since new - 5 years ago - I guess the high rise standard suspension has a lot to do with that

The roads here can be very poor - road works just appear and you have no where to go but over the dirt / rubble / kirb

Also have fitted Bilstein dampers, front strut bar and Novitec anti-roll bars which helps sort out the handling and reduce dive over speed bumps

Had two, now I am without. When I took the second one off, I was amazed at how flimsy the plastic is. My opinion - serves little purpose and I am now going without.

Re: Does Your Car Have An Engine Undertray?

I've still got the original plastic tray on the GTV. It had split but was quite easily and effectively fixed by drilling holes on each side of the splits and "stitching it" with thick garden wire - the repair looks ok believe it or not.

As well as giving a (small) level of protection it also helps to keep the engine clean.

Re: Does Your Car Have An Engine Undertray?

I'm the second owner of the car but I suspect the engine undertray is the factory fitted one. (hence the first owner only had it for 18 months) So far the undertray is on it's fifth year despite the car being lowered 35 mm's. I guess it's all a matter of how observant you are whilst driving

Re: Does Your Car Have An Engine Undertray?

Although the first one didn't last long, thanks to the long-travel suspension, the second one is still in tact after upgrading the suspension.
