This replacement belly pan was designed by IDParts as an alternative to the much more expensive, plastic OEM pan and the heavier and harder to install aluminum skid plates.

This aluminum belly pan requires no modifications or additional hardware whatsoever and weighs just under 5 pounds, making installation a breeze. It secures exactly like the OEM pan, using all OEM screws and screw locations on the side skirts and subframe.

This aluminum belly pan should be more durable than the plastic but it is not a heavy duty skidplate and will protect your engine similarly to the OEM plastic cover. We recommend new sideskirts if yours have been damaged or ripped.

For vehicles with automatic transmissions.

What our customers say...

Purchased this for a 2006 VW New Beetle TDI automatic. It is less expensive than the original and given how badly the original ripped I wanted to try this aluminum part. On the plus side, it is the correct size, it is light, I've driven it about 250 miles and over some low vegetation without issues, and I was able to install it without a second person. On the minus side, the second and third holes on the driver side are not correctly placed relative to the holes in the original side skirts. They're drilled about an inch away from where they should be placed. This isn't something you can bend into place. You don't find this out until after you crawl under you car, remove the original belly pan, and put it in place. I didn't want to deal with returns and/or reinstalling a severely damaged original pan, so I drilled a new hole in the original side skirt and then put a zip tie into the final hole. I also purchased new hardware (clips and screws). The new clips don't seem to be deep enough to fit the original side skirts and still reach the holes. After struggling with a new clip on one of the side skirt holes, I left in the remaining original clips and installed the new screws. ID Parts has a helpful video that explains the process of replacing the belly pan and side skirts. Watch before installing. In the video they say that you can install the belly pan without lifting the car. It's clearly much easier to replace with the car lifted. I installed the pan without lifting the car and want to caution people that this might not work for you. I was just barely able to slide in from the FRONT of the car and reach all the screws. For the very back holes, I had to fully extend one arm and feel blindly for where the screws fit. I used a ratchet with a 1/4 inch socket and double-sided tape to hold in the bit to screw and unscrew hardware. You won't be able to fit a drill or screw driver in there. Because I was operating one-handed I blocked up the belly pan while screwing it in: you can't use your second hand to hold it up while screwing in the two back screws. So you want try to install this without lifting the car, test first if you can uninstall the original pan and/or reach all the screws before ordering. Otherwise, you should lift the car.
