Default How to remove bottom front panels?

Can anyone describe or point to instructions on removing the plastic under-engine panel(s) on a standard Gen 4 (2019). At 14kmi ours is dropping splotches and trails of lubricant as we "bounce" into our driveway. The dealer replaced a cracked oil pan washer on warranty, but the mechanic didn't remove the belly pan and the problem persists. It could be that the pan is merely holding oil from before the car was "fixed", but given that the lubricants one can measure (engine oil, PS fluid) have never dropped, even before the "repair", I'm concerned it could the transmission. The dealership want's $100 just to take the car in, refunded if it's judged a warranty problem, so I want to look myself before returning it.
