    See if you know what this could be

    Howdo all

    Went shopping last night and in the car park drove over a little island thing made up of a curb and a hole sort of got stranded on it for a minute and drove off it.

    Now whenever i put my foot down and let off the throttle i can hear a "flapping" sound. Only happens when i let off... any ideas? its obviously due to banging something.

    No loss of power or anything

    cheers

    Ripped plastic engine undertray? Loose exhaust/cat heat sheild?

    Have a crawl under the car, you'll probably see whatever it is.

    Mine hasn't got one - I presume it was ripped off. It has the front bits - I presume it comes in about 3 different parts
