Q: Metal covering dragging on ground

asked by on

It appears as if some screws are missing from underneath my vehicle. A metal covering is dragging on the ground.

Hi. It sounds like the belly pan has come loose. Replacement screws can be purchased at the dealer and the pan can be reinstalled. To determined if the pan is damaged or if the hardware is present to re-attach the pan, you can have a certified mechanic, like one form YourMechanic, inspect the noise and and make sure the pan is the problem.
