Absolutely smashing product, fitted straight on to van, had to do no modification. Has lasted so far with going up dodgy tracks and farm fields hit it multiple times off the ground, no damage to plate itself and more importantly no damage to sump or other components . Highly recommend great product, great service will definitely buy this again.
The overall product is good and well designed. However, there were a couple of areas that could be improved. The product itself was for a Peugeot Partner. Unfortunately, the small 'L' shaped brackets which fix it onto the sub frame had the holes in the wrong place and these had to be re-drilled to make them fit. I did try and seek guidance from the company but no one got back to me.
My first order wasn't delivered but when I phoned up to find out where it had gone, it was dealt with quickly and a replacement order was despatched, which did arrive.
Steel sump guard for the protection of the engine and the gearbox for Volvo XC70
Very pleased indeed with the steel sump guard which I fitted to my Volvo XC70. It's a very well-designed item that adds useful protection to the underside of the car. The mountings make fitting it very easy. If you're likely to take your vehicle anywhere where the sump might be at risk of damage, this is a 'must have' accessory. Highly recommended.
Bought and fitted one for my lowered Vauxhall Astra G a few months ago, has taken a few significant impacts and seems to be very strong and resilient. Nice to have the peace of mind that it's not my sump taking the impact.
Would be cool to have easier access to the oil drain, as I'm not looking forward to my next service, but it's well worth having the protection under my sump so it's a small price to pay
I run the Forum www.allgrip.co.uk and i have fitted sumpguards to 2018 Vitara, 2012 Grand Vitara, 2018 Ignis and 2008 SX4.......all products have fitted perfectly and delivered very well packaged with no problems, cannot recommend these products enough
A very well made item.only drawback is the weight , but with it being steel and so thick it cant be helped.maybe an alloy would be better.I have not fitted it yet.so dont know if it makes car nose heavy.
Compared with the useless plastic sump guard my Nissan X-Trail came fitted with, this clearly very robust product rates ten stars. However the fit for the X-Trail wasn't brilliant, I had to drill bigger holes to take the unusual (but innovative) right angle retaining bolts. Also the bolts themselves, unlike the self-locking nuts, are not heat treated and it proved very easy to strip the threads. But the people at Sump Guard provided first rate customer service in response, sending me a second complete set of fittings free of charge. Definitely recommended, just be prepared for the possibility that you might have to spend a bit of extra time on the fitting.
Steel sump guard for Audi A5, diesel, Steel gearbox guard for Audi A5
Product fitted with little effort and was a brilliant replacement for the original which was ripped off. Product also came with access panel to drain the oil which is an improvement on the original. Reasonably priced and not far off the original parts price from Audi.
The main thing is that this item does NOT fit the Fiesta ST Mk7 - even though I made it very plain that is the car it was to go on. To be fair the seller has refunded in full the £121 I paid for the item - and told me to keep it, get it adapted to fit. So I have done that, the cost of adapting and fitting was £259. Now that it's fitted to the car, the sump guard scrapes the ground quite a lot whereas minus sump guard I only ever scraped once in 6 months. I think I might have been better to get a one-off sump guard custom made - but how much that would have cost me I do not know.
Looks good and strong. However, I have not fitted it yet to my Forester SG because of the poor packaging. The paint was chipped an I had to repaint it with Hammerite enamel for extra protektion. It also would have been nice to be notified that the shipping to Sweden was ”on”. One of the rubber things was like rotted, decayed and falling appart so I need a new one. I think it’s a good buy at this price!
