Re: Undertray Poll - Update
The dealer refitted an undertray today for me. I say 'an' undertray, as I don't recall if my old one was plastic or metal, and the one they fitted today looks like shiny new black plastic, with shiny new bolts, so it may not have been the original - and other Vel Satis owners tell me their tray is metal.
But the plastic one they fitted today does look fairly sturdy and it goes all the way from the smaller undertray right at the front, to way back beyond the front axle. It doesn't cover further back such as where the exhaust sections are, but maybe they're not meant to.
So I'm happier now the engine, sump and belts, etc, are protected again, as they should have been in the first place!
But, the blasted front-end symptoms are still occuring and made the homeward journey uncomfortable, but they said they didn't spot anything after their visual inspection.
