Broken Plastic underneath car towards front

I drove over something on the highway that cracked the plastic covering that spans from front wheel to front wheel. Is that something I need to have replaced, and what is it called?

    Its cracked so bad that we had to remove it! It was scraping the ground. I called Mazda and they said it's 3 separate parts--I was hoping to find the part(s) cheap and have my local service station mechanic put it on. Thanks for your input!

Bueno, se puede reparar con adhesivo especial. Ademas se puede reforzar con laminas de aluminio que dan rigidez a pieza.

2006 Murano. Where is the starter located?

If you stand facing the engine with the hood open. The starter is located on the left side of the engine. It will be difficult to see from the top. But can be seen if you remove the plastic cover on the right front wheel well, or if you were to remove the plastic panel underneath the car. If you stand facing the engine with the hood open.

Renolte megane 2 head light change right headlight

the steering lock needs to be put on full towards the opposite side, if your changing the drivers side put the lock on towards the passengers.

then remove the plastic cover under the wheel arch.

it will reveal another plastic cover which if rubber will just pull off, else twist off.
this will then reveal the bulb, pull out the cable which may need a bit of a jiggle.

the bulb should be held in place by a metal spring clip which needs to be pushed towards the front of the car and then outwards, this should release the bulb.

change the bulb it should be a 477

Check the fuse box located underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip the fuse box cover lid cover and there will be a diagram. Locate the "Wiper" fuse on the diagram and replace it with the same number fuse. Look underneath your vehicle for any evidence of broken plastic or possibly your CV axle has broken. Check your oil and transmission fluid and make sure they are topped off. Look for any liquid leaking at the bottom of your car.

How do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?

If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.
