A couple of weeks back, most of the plastic undertray beneath my radiator was blown away by some sort of animal carcass... I've just now found the time (and a garage) to get it taken care of. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get to a few bolts that are still holding the current damaged tray in place. If anyone has the slightest idea of how to do this, please let me know.
Picture of the damage.

At best guess, the only bolts that aren't coming out are the three along the section that "stands up" on either side of the tray... Again, if anyone can offer any help with this (or point me to a thread if this has been done before), it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The night has a thousand eyes,
And the day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies,
With the dying sun.
Haha, looks like I do... If you hadn't mentioned that I would never have known there was such a part. lol. Looks like I'll have to order that too.
Oh, and thanks again for posting those diagrams. I finally found the other bolts I couldn't spot at first (can't believe how obvious they were once I knew where to look...). Just got the tray off, underbody washed, and the poor frog that got wedged in there somehow has been removed. Should be able to replace it in no time. Thanks!

Geez, that's awful! Now, I've been avoiding the dead racoons, opossums and cats on the road because of the low ground clearance (something I didn't bother to worry about with my old Subaru wagon). However, in the rural area around my home we have a vicious frog season here in the spring. There are literally thousands of frogs crossing the country roads in the peak weeks, some of them a big as softballs. Last season I had the Subaru so I avoided them when I could when they were sparse, but when they were thick I just drove straight and tried to ignore the steady *squish*, *squirt*, *squash* sounds from the tires.
Sure I had to hose off some frog guts, but I never would have imagined a frog getting stuck in the underbody. Yucky!
wow, mine has been off since i bought it from the last owner, deffinately going to buy it and put it on... geez, wonder what else i'm missing.
