So I looked under my car tonight because the undertray was hanging low / sagging in the middle / a bit scuffed up and I noticed a few (2) bolts missing (including the one in the center) and a few won't tighten. I have a replacement undertray and all the vents, but what do I do about the bolts that won't tighten?

Thanks all.

There's also option 3, get this aluminum skid plate and never deal with it again. For oil changes I just remove the two access panels and that's it.

You do need a rivet nut installer tool though, it replaces those crap clips with rivet nuts and bolts.

This sort of looks like what Jamo posted:


There's a couple other parts shown/listed that might be what you need. Not sure if they all have the same thread and pitch; though it seems like they would (hard to tell what the engineers were thinking when they do some stuff). Good luck!

On your side of the ditch? No idea, but any good auto parts store should be able to sort you out. Or Ebay?
:LOL: You remind me why I've always liked Australians - not to mention their taste in cars. RIP Holden and Ford of Australia - they made some great stuff for you folks.

Just be careful as one left side front bolt I found loose resulted in having to buy a new inner fender as that is where the bolt screws into_I live in Canada an found many of the bolt holders in the body stripped after Ford replaced the undertray after a failure-----Ford comments_ "Left most underbody shield retainer anchor point has failed recommend replace R/F inner fender $268 Canadian"
