Dammmnnn!

Well, here's how my day went. I was on my way to Six Flags Great america & about 3/4 of the way there I heard a nasty noise coming from the driver side. I'm thinkin' ...oh shit the plastic cover under the engine fell again. So when I have a chance I exit the highway & check it out. Not only did the front part get loose, but the whole damn thing was hanging & rubbing against my wheel & the ground! So my nephew & I decide to make it to the amusement park since I didn't have any tools with me & right before we got there the whole entire wheel well plastics got caught on the driver side wheel & the whole damn shit just ripped off!!! I looked in my rear view Mirror & saw other motorists swirving so that they don't hit the debris I left behind!!! Those were a couple of pretty big chunks of debris that came from my car! Well anyway, I park my car at Six Flags Great America embarassed as hell from the scraping noise that the remaining piece was doing on the way there. After parking, I do a check & see that the whole wheel well of the driver side is gone!!! Only thing left is the plastic piece right underneath the engine. Scraping the ground I might add. To top it off it looks like my Kaminari kit is falling apart!!! Man, I'm so pissed. Well anyways, I took 11 pics when I got home. PLEASE WAIT WHILE ALL 11 PICS ARE POSTED BEFORE POSTING ANY COMMENTS!!! Thx.

I think Toyota really did a shitty job when it comes to the underbody plastic pieces. So many people have problems with them. It happened to me a couple of weeks ago. Mine is being zip-tied together now.

that sucks man thumbsdown

similair thing happened to my car just the other night... was on the highway, was going quite fast and went over a bridge & bounced, my tyre hit the well & smashed it up a bit & was making the worst noise. called my mate up & we pulled over but i was able to tear off the noisy bit for the ride home...

my friend reckoned my wheel fitter should have taken the well off when i got the bigger wheels fitted confused do they serve much of a purpose???

The same thing happened to me with my car, but not until my boyfriend was fitting my kit on... So he just cut it off. Is that bad? Will it do any damage to the underneath of my car?

man that's horrible... at least there was no major damage to anything else. You should have taken the wheel well out the first time you stopped rather than having it be a potential danger to other drivers later...

My passenger side plastics came off a few weeks ago while driving here in Germany, it was so embarrasing driving onto a military instalation with all of the guards and shit out there looking at my car like it was gonna blow up or something becuase of the obnoxious noise that was comming from the plastics scraping against the pavement. And I looked into replacing them, the price is rediculous!
