    So there are 2 underbody panels at the front of the car under the engine.
    The one closest to the front bumper. ( not the one you remove to drain oil)
    Dead centre has a indent with 2 bolts in it.
    Can anyone tell me what the black bolt does?
    The one that's behind the bolt with the washer on it.
    Mine is loose and I can turn it by hand.
    All others look like they hold they panel on.

    I agree. If it wasn’t 9 million degrees I’d get under mine and check it out.

    I don't want to unscrew it a mess something up but can't tell what it's attached to from above.

    "You have a screw loose." Of course, you knew that already. ;)

    It just helps hold that skid plate on while you install the screws and plastic push pins. Nothing more.

    Just 10mm bolts + 1 plastic push pin holding splash guard up. Remove them and you will see up ur stingers skirt :thumbup:

    Haha! I found this screw in my backseat when I left the dealership and have been scratching my head for days.
