Replacing plastic pieces in my front bumper

1577 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Mathew
I need to replace some plastic bits in the airdam of my car. It's the "flaps?" around the right foglight. A while back i noticed it was cracked, and now it has gotten worse. I ordered the part, but i wanted to see if this is something i could easily do. It looks like a simple "Pull out the old, snap in the new" routine. I wanna see if i can do this before I overpay my service dept. Anybody have any thoughts, idea, experiences??

the p/n is 51-11-8-204-358. Its called a lateral something or other. And yes, this is nate's car

how much did they want for the part? I have a set I would sell cheap. And yes it is easy to replace. Email me if you are interested in the part.

I did mine. Piece of cake...You just need to remove the long, horizontal diffuser by pinching it in the middle and pull out toward the edge, that'll expose the two screws holding in the foglight housing. Remove screw, replace housing, replace diffuser.

Done.
