My mother in law drove over a center divider in her brand new corolla (which we bought her 🙄)

The only damage I can see is this area of the undercarriage, under the driver seat.

Being a new vehicle, I can’t find much in the way of a diagram or schematic. Anyone have any idea what this is or it’s purpose?

Thanks in advance! enter image description here

    Can't see much detail in that pic, take it to the dealer and they will know exactly what to check for. Insurance may, or may not, cover any damage. – Solar Mike Jul 9 '20 at 8:54
  • Looks like a cover panel got ripped off, take it to a body shop for further inspection. – Moab Jul 9 '20 at 11:46
  • It's rarely worth making an insurance claim for self-inflicted damage. They'll want their money back somehow. When it's on a TP's insurance, it is them who takes the hit in premiums. – Weather Vane Jul 9 '20 at 13:44
  • That makes sense Moab. I’m gonna put it on jack stands to compare the two sides. I think we will skip going thru insurance. Not much of a way to explain driving over the median... Thanks to everyone for responding. – Jeffrey Lawson Jul 9 '20 at 16:52
  • Should this lady be driving? – Michael Harvey Jul 11 '20 at 15:26
