    Just had to pay 600 quid on the missus yaris as a stone hit an aircon pipe which in turn killed the compressor. There's no engine undertray on the car and I'd hate for this to happen again.

    It's a petrol, and there does not seem to be an undertray for the petrol, but there is for the diesel.

    For 35 quid I am minded to take a punt and make it fit, it's the same car after all and I have a lot of self-tapping trim/cover fixings.

    What do you guys think?

    It's fairly likely the chassis based pickup points will be there. The diesel will have been specified with undertray for acoustic purposes.

    Agree with Doodle, well worth a punt for £35, it would give a lot of peace of mind.

    Apologies as I only just saw your post but another option is to order a metal one from Steel Engine Sump Guard

    I have one on my w211 which is essential if living in London with a stanced car as the standard plastic ones crack easily and then disintegrate during a motorway run.
