R171 Belly Pan

I recently had my 2007 AMG serviced and noticed the other day while washing my car, that the plastic panel underneath the engine bay is loose just behind the bumper.

If you stand at the front of the car and feel underneath the bumper toward the engine, the painted bumper is met by a black plastic belly pan at the bottom of the car. The belly pan feels like it fits up behind the bumper, but it is loose and can be pushed up as if it is able to flop around in the wind.

Did the dealer forget some screws or did they replace the belly pan improperly?

If anyone knows or can check to see if it is the same way on their car, I appreciate the help.

There are four bolts that attach the front pan to the bumper cover -- they probably forgot them.
