Hi all, on checking rear drivers side tyre pressure on my 307hdi i noticed that a plastic cover was hanging down so i tied it up with a cable tie. anyone know what this cover is for ?

Yes, it's main function is acoustic to help cars get through increasingly stringent euro noise regs. It may also help minimally with airflow, and they certainly help keep the engine bay clean.

The fasteners are a little like the old Dzus fasteners on motorbike fairings, and cost about a quid each from the stealers, though you need to check the captive 'nut' hasn't also vanished or the new fastener won't have anything to bite onto.

Hi, Thanks for your info. if i take it off does it fail dreaded MOT or cause any problems apart from noise ?

Regards
