What is hanging from underneath my Lexus IS 250 after going in for service at the dealership?


Asked by Nov 25, 2013 at 10:36 AM about the 2012 Lexus IS 250 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went into the dealership for a regular service appt and after picking it up and pulling into the driveway of my house I heard a scraping sound. I checked underneath and there is a flap that is hanging down and attached to the bottom of my car. Is this part of servicing to protect my car? Could someone help? I called the dealership and they need me to go in, I just want more info about this before I go back in. Also, I want to be sure it is safe to drive.

Looks like the protection plastic panel was installed in the wrong orientation, it will be safe to drive back to the dealership.
