It takes your preoccupations away from ground clearance and onto the darn hood!


Post a picture as it sounds the business!!

I hit a large stone about a month ago. 2002 Rover Plus8. Huge bang.
Thankfully a steel sump! Dent but no leaks. Phew!
The chassis crossmember has grounded a few times mainly speedbumps and lack of care from me.
4 years ago I grounded on an uneven surface and lost traction. The crossmember was on a rock. I had to get out and remove it. Luckily it was a loose one. No damage. It raised the rear wheels just enough to lose grip. The area it happened is now even worse but I don't go there any more. Near Arthur's Stone on Gower. Park elsewhere.

This sounds like the one - I wonder do they make one for the V6's ?

I was at Goodwood yesterday in the Morgan and directed into a field over an unseen 'step' from concrete to grass. Gave the sump an almighty clunk and had to reverse - could not pass the step. The sump guard has been bent at the front - but no other damage. Had I not had it, the sump tray would have been ripped off - no question.

Given the number of "low riding" cars likely to visit Goodwood the presence of such a potentially damaging obstacle should be drawn to the attention of the organisers...

Maybe if you're off-roading you'd do better to use your Range Rover.... innocent

I was looking at the wolf performance sump.
Wow. Not cheap. 280 GBP + VAT + shipping + packing.
https://www.wolfperformance.co.uk/aero-sump.html
Is there any discount somewhere, by chance?

It's a lot cheaper than a replacement engine!

+1 also. I had a Wolf guard fitted last October. I'm very careful over speed bumps etc... but it's sods law that catches you out when you're least expecting it. We pay a lot of money for our beautiful cars....a sump guard is as good as insurance.
