Black plastic liner is falling off from under the car in front

This part is hanging low and it drags when I am driving. Can I just have it removed or will it damage anything underneath?

    What is the best way to remove it? Can I do it at home or do I need to take it to a professional?



    Also, where can I buy a replacement? Thank you!

How do I access the screen wash bottle on Honda CRV 2006 diesel


I don't know where the washer bottle is on this model, friend, but the modern trend is to fit them low down with an extended spout especially if it is a large capacity bottle. They are often fitted in the space under the forward part of the front wing, mudguard or fender and following the direction of the filler spout should give a strong clue to the location. Access usually means moving plastic parts out of the way; such as the wing liner and any undertray or parts of an undertray.
Especially in winter when plastic is very difficult to work with it is better to completely remove any plastic parts but be aware some or all of any plastic retainers are likely to break during removal. Better access to the wing liner would be achieved by raising the car taking proper safety precautions and removing the front wheel.

I hope this helps.

Damaged plastic liner of wheel well rubs on tire when driving over bumps


Even if you popped the dent out, the liner may not fit back on tightly. They are usually held by plastic clips or plastic pins or even plastic screws that easily get distorted, or the hole they are held with gets enlarged from tearing. You could keep the liner up with a couple of machine screws drilled into strategic places....or, you could just remove the liner-it's not a safety issue-it just helps keep mud and dirt from building up in the wheel wells and fender corners. To remove it, first take the wheel off. Then you can see how it is held on Pull it off and throw it away.
If you pop the dent out and fender looks pretty good, and the liner appears it can be re-used with just a little help, all the better.
It;s up to you.

Yeah, you can do that or you can go to an auto supply store and get new fasterners and re-install. That piece is basically like a skid plate it is to protect the undercarriage from the rocks and other road debris from popping up and damaging engine/vehicle components.

Where is the windshield washer pump on a 1995 olds Aurora?


It is located under the passenger side front fender. You have to remove the "wheel well" liner to access the pump. It is not a costly item and is carried by NAPA. Getting to it is the work. Jack the car up on right front side---remove wheel and then remove wheel well liner . It involves some phillips head screws along with some plastic fasteners.

Piece of plastic is hanging down under front end of my wife's Beetle, she is 2 hours from home is car safe to drive?


It is the deflector shield for the bottom of the car, the car can be driven, just let her know that if she hears something really funny to pull off to the side of the road and look. I would say to just have her completely remove it, even if she needs to rip it off, because you are going to have to replace the part anyways

I have a 97 SL2. Muffler "liner" falled?


You may be looking at the heat shield above the exhaust pipe. For the most part this is not an expensive fix unless you live in the socalled "saltbelt" where the salt from the snow removal eats away the mounting points on the shield.
