Hello I’ve had a picanto 68 plate for two weeks and noticed yesterday a low hanging wire under the centre of the car, taken it to a Kia garage who briefly looked at it and said it looks like retainer clips have broken and mentioned brake lines/fuel lines.

I can’t get it in for a week due to parts and garages being busy, is this safe to drive like this for a few days?

I would not leave it like that.. if you can and have a chance to get under see if you can secure with a small cable tie in some way..
thanks for fast reply

I’ve gotten under and taken a photo, the blue arrow is pointing to the wire which is hanging, would it be
Safe to cable tie to the wire running alongside it (green arrow) until it’s fixed ?

Hi to be honest the photo is to close to make a judgment and I'm not certain what I am looking at.. is the one with the green arrow securely supported .. you dont want to put extra stress on another and drag that down as well
