    Bit of a job to explain mate really. If the original undertray has fallen off i would guess that most of the female fixings will still be fixed onto the chassis, May become more obvious when you get it up in the air

    The white washer type pieces push directly onto the large black plastic fixings, which then push through the undertray and fix by half a turn into the chassis

    I think that the smaller metal black screws incorporated with the bright female fixings may fix the tray on along the line closest to the bumper. Also there is a fixing for the tray inside both wheel arches at the very bottom , these could be for that too.

    As i say mate..... bit hard to explain. Good luck

    Thanks for taking the time to respond buddy, I appreciate it's hard to explain.

    The clear discs don't seem to fit over the large black fixings, so thought I would check. The amounts of each was confusing as there are 7 white discs and only 4 large fixings. That's why I thought they might have something to do with the screw / thread insert fixings as there are 7 of them.

    I'm lost with the black rubber things on the right too.

    It may well be more obvious when underneath, but fore-armed is the best way!!!!

    I didn't lose either mate, had an oil change the other day and noticed most of the clips are actually tie-wraps.

    All fixing points look unbroken, so decided to reaffix as it should be.
