Engine Undertray front middle fixing - 406 V6 Estate

Post by bsdnazz » Sat Nov 03, 2018 5:39 pm

Hi,

I've just spent a hour getting under my car to remove the plastic undertray after one of the corners cracked and came loose. While I can find replacement undertrays and fixings on the Internet I'm not sure what to do abou the front centre fixing.

This appears to link both the centre of the undertray and a strut from the front of the 'bumper' to the underside of a beam under the radiator.

The fixing looks different as it needs to fix the strut and undertray.

Does anyone know if this is the case? Are there any diagrams or photos of what is needed or how this goes together?

Thanks,
Guy

Hi, sorry I missed this post...
I felt sure the front middle fixing was a 10mm bolt.

Is there also a metal plate that goes on the bolt to hold the strut from the front body work and middle of the undertray? The undertray has a notch there rather than a hole.
