Question Bumper Part Needs Identified

This may be a stupid question but what you you call the pieces underneath the bumper that run vertically? They are factory pieces but the only name I can think of is ground effects....can't seem to find replacements under that name online. I am somehow missing a a couple and would like to replace them (not the whole bumper). Thanks!

Sounds like smolck is on the right path. Below are some photos of part 8 from the diagram he linked.

Included a picture of the area of the car this time :)

I'm sorry, I must have described it wrong. I have attached a picture of what needs replaced. It's the pieces missing underneath the headlight and fog light. Yeah, I need a new tow cover as well I just realized it runs horizontally instead of vertically.....Thanks for your help!

Ah I see now, Looks like you need the grid cover. LINK to the one you're missing. And while we're at it HERE is a link to the tow hook cover.

The photo is upside down
