    Anyone know what this is? Is it part of the undertray? It is located around the engine of the car. I'm not quite sure what it is but the car has been scraping and I feel like it is coming from this. Could it be removed or what is the name of the part so that it can be replaced. Thanks.

    Pretty sure I'm missing the clutch switch but have no idea where to find this part and if it would even fix the issue of cruise control. The Cruise Main light appears but nothing else when any other buttons are pressed. Here's the clutch pedal and the white wire I'd assume is for this switch? Cheers

    It's time for my awesome Civic to go. :crying: Gave it a proper clean and have sold it as of the weekend... It was my first Civic and probably won't be my last!
