Once those the under carriage are removed you will pin point the issue.... Itís literally in the section of your oil pan etc.

Hahahaha! Those under carriage are super expensive, I know cause I just replaced mine. Ripped up from Mpact from rolling lolol plus rain got to it from that day and didnít help that felt type material.

But it does serve a big purpose and for aero and helps keeps SMG cooler has it has vents etc to guide air to SMG unit...

Yeah hundreds of dollar I bet and has important functions for the car! I just meant I am missing the jack pad that I believe attaches in the middle of the front sub frame. Need to find the part number for that thing.

Turned out it was a dented/cracked sump. Must have aired out onto some stones/pebbles and caused a dink in the sump. Managed to get an LCI sump (with 2 drain bolts) for less than £120 GBP so got that changed out and she's running a treat!
