My car doesn't have the under tray unfortunately. I only saw one plastic hold down (not sure what the correct name is) for the wheel arch liner. I'm sure there is more then one and I prefer to remove the wheels so I can see everything so I don't damage anything.

Ok but will it be safe to use since my jack stand has a u shape top? I found out the hard way to not support the subframe itself with the jack stand as it put a dent in it.
