    Hi. I am new to Illustrator, so I hope that my question will make sense. I have a symmetrical design that I am working with. I imported it, did a Live Trace, Expanded it and then set about correcting all the deformities that happened. There was one piece on the left side that I couldn't get to look right, so I used Object>Transform>Reflect on the corresponding shape on the right hand side of the image. Then I dragged it over to the left side and deleted the disfigured piece. Voila! It looked great! Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to erase the background behind the new piece. Every other shape has an empty interior except for this one. I am attaching a picture of what I am talking about. Any ideas? Am I making sense? Thanks so much for you help!

    You can try making a shape with the same fill color, and navigate to Select > Same > Fill Color.
    You can try manually select each point on the object, using the Direct Select tool, and change the fill.
    Toggle down your layer to really see/analyze all the objects in your file...sometimes that helps answer questions.
    Hope that helps.
