mystery part front lower bumper cover

Postby campb292 » Tue Jul 12, 2016 9:20 am

I am seeking a replacement for a little black cover that goes in the lower driver's side front bumper. It looks like a little piece that is about 5" x 3". Mine blew out or got kicked out or something. I am not sure if it was there to help wind resistance or to protect an internal component but I would like to replace it. I circled it in the pic attached.

Thanks for any info or guidance!

It's just a grille. More for aesthetics than anything. Your best bet on finding one would the at the dealer or from a salvage yard.

Thanks, I thought the middle part was a grille, the sides something else since they have no opening. I managed to find one on the bay for 8 bucks. I plan to keep little Vibey running a bit longer. 216k and everything still works!

Received the replacement part, matches perfectly. Thankfully the little tabs on the bumper side that hold it on were all intact. You were also right gtv237... It was just aesthetics. I shined a light and there really isn't anything delicate behind there.

My Vibe lives on - all parts intact.
