Hi Scatz - maybe your motor supposed to have an undertray but somebody trashed it - I know they are a pain but don't be tempted to run your car without it. Without any protection there is a risk of small stones, etc getting flung up into the engine bay and damaging the auxillary belt which if fails can cause the timing belt to fail and then the engine is likely to get furbarred. I t happened to a neighbour of mine - he ended up needing a new engine and it wasn't a cheap. Yeh if you have a look round many garages you'll find loads of the darned things piled up somewhere - the manufacturers did fit them for a reason apart from reducing noise.
