I renewed my coolent this morning and while doing so 2 of the 3 bolts holding the under tray in sheered off....

The side two near the wheel are ok and the passenger side is ok but the central one and drivers side bold have sheered off.

Is there going to be any problem running the car without the undertray on or will it cause problems? As I can see while driving the air is going to pull the one side out as there is nothing holding it. Unless I cut the middle bit out and leave the sides in as thats where I can see where the most of the protection is needed?

I had the same problem, just drilled out and re-tapped the offending bolt.
