sumpgaurd plate and transmission axle cover

Ok saga goes on apart from having two bolts missing after some work done on X (i think i can replace em) I noticed that on underside under driver/passenger area as per pic that the 'lip' in yellow (one on each side) of plastic cover for transmission axle are fitted over the metal sump gaurd plate....anyone have any idea if the 'lip' in yellow should fit/slide under sump gaurd...if yes when I go tomorrow will ask the guy to get it on the ramp and put it on correctly. i will struggle to do it on the floor myself...total friggin nightmare..... scanned online but there are no pics of the underside of an X5 as it is on an elevated ramp, pics online show that part totally removed revealing axel....ANy input great

Looks correct. There are something like five tabs on the front of the transmission shield (I think) - three go over the reinforcement plate and two go under. Meaning you should be able to see two tabs.

Same as mine...

Wpoll cheers you saved me alot of time ...was gonna argue with starter man to take it off and re install so those 2 tabs become concealed by the metal sump gaurd....your pic i can clearly see the one tab and i guess in the distance other one is in same position too.

Been one hell of a struggle this starter....going back to be given my olr one tomorrow for reference purposes...thanks once again

Ps your underbelly near along its width near the tabs has some sort of wing...have no idea if mine had or not...seems like something that would deflect water down?

Not sure what part you are referring to here... I'm pretty sure the transmission shield is a single piece item (with some thin alloy heat shielding in one or two locations on the inside). No trim pieces associated with it.

Nope - nothing there - that's just the front edge of the moulded plastic shield.

There is also some sound insulation on this shield, making it heavy.

You can see it here - part #7.

Mr. Wpoll you are too right, that 'wing' was an actual moulding part of underside tray, not extra wing as I called it....optical illusion of my photo!


As for screws and bits missing well not gonna lose sleep over it, besides the realoem site shows slight variation...if you see my 'screw' on bottom right photo it is not the same as the one on realoem site maybe got my wires crossed in another post you say it is an expanding rivet i am looking for, pic on bottom left is where its missing on the other side....I am just gonna try to screw in a plastic screw i have handy and put a largish washer on it...thanks again you have saved me embarrassment of going at mr.annakis today and accusing him of puting parts he took off back on wrong...so owe ya one He will be giving my old denso back.....very tempted ot put it in the dishwasher to clean (apart from solenoid) and idea if its a bad idea?
