Just picked up a 2003 Mini Cooper S today it has very little ground clearance! But what fun to drive.
Going over a long speed bump where you drive up over and down I heard the front plastic catch.
I now have what seems to be a piece of plastic bowing down under the car going across and catching the wind.
How easy is it to take this off so I can then get it to s garage to get a new one fitted?

It's no doubt the under engine shielding . I bet it just broke a few easy to replace plastic tabs that if you replaced it would hang correctly.
I don't know about these cars but on most that shielding helps divert air for better cooling so think twice befor you remove it. And learn to go over humps like that at as much of an angle as possible to to prevent that I'm the future

Thanks it looks like it wasn’t attached properly I have ordered a new part which will be fitted this week. Just bought the car I had to go back over the hump to get out of the car park. Decided the footpath and dropped kerb was a cheaper alternative.
A place to avoid in the future apparently the council have a lot of complaints about it.
