While driving the other night I heard a dragging noise under the car (I suspected a muffler or exhaust pipe). Turns out, it was what I can only describe as a two-part pan-like piece of metal, which appears to encompass part of the exhaust system (looks like it may have been fastened together with 2 or 4 nuts/bolts). It was located in the frontal section of the car, approximately under where the front passenger/driver floormats would be. Can anyone tell me what this part is. Should it be replaced. Is it safe to drive the car without it being in place.
Note: there is no noticeable difference in the
sound of the exhaust system?
Sorry I can't offer any further info. Thanks for any anticipated help.
