Bastard...It was my turn.

So yeah, I was about to drive my girl home, so I reverse my car, then I started to hear this noise, similar to driving over a plastic bottle or something. So I went forward and the noise went away. I pulled a U Turn and saw that there was no bottle. I think nothing of it because as I was driving off, I did not hear the noise again.

As I dropped her off, her house is on a small incline by the way, so my car rolled back a bit before I left. The noise came back, I was like WTF.

I went home, check underneath my car, and guess what? One of my Under Panel is falling off. It is the one that is usually taken off when changing oil. Freaking Toyota!!

So now I am driving with 1 less Under Panel thumbsdown

That happenned to me too. I just took one of the clips from another panel and stuck it on. I figured it would be temporary, but its held for a few weeks now.

Yeah, I think I am going to zip tie it back on. I only have 2 out of 6 screws. I guess the other ones fell when I was driving.

Don't feel bad. I have never seen a used Celica without missing or hanging underplastics. Mine included before.

The sound was not loud. Can't even hear anything when driving forward because the way the panel fell. But yeah, is cool, I will tie strap the thing.

Haha I guess this is a common problem, because when I looked under my car that cover is hanging down. Do you guys think it's safe to just take that cover off, because it's very annoying to her that noise when you are going backwards. I mean we all took out our engine plastics shouldn't this be something of a similar nature.
