couvercle canal derrière le chauffeur se décolle

Duct cover
Explanation:
First, a request, then the explanation of the term.

(1) The request: please, when you have a specialized term, such as this one, submit it as a "Pro" request, rather than as "Easy". Most KudoZ answerers are only registered to answer "Pro" questions--because too many of the "Easy" questions are for homework help, or from people wanting to know how to say "I love you" in some other language. Professional translators get tired of having their mailbox cluttered with such requests, and limit themselves to just answering questions from fellow translators. In my case, I try to answer everyone's questions, but have been quite frustrated for the past several days, because I have not been able to access the answer function in KudoZ : evidently something had been changed on ProZ that meant this function could not be accessed through Netscape, which is what I use. This has now been corrected, so I'm giving you your answer.

(2) The explanation of the term and a translation of the whole phrase:

Duct cover behind the driver becomes detached.
