Hi..

 

Hopefully i can help..

 

Do you have the last 7 digits of your vin number handy?

 

Also i asume this part is right under the bumper/be it part of the underside protection or is it part of bottom trim on the bumper itself?

 

If you have image you can send might help further?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Last 7 digits are C375168. The part seems to be underside protection just below the bumper. Will take a picture tomorrow iff you still can't identify what it is

Hi..there thanks for your reply..

 

Ok..Ive managed to narrow down "the certain trim for that car according to VIN" does any of these below look familiar this is the very corner sections round about the inner wheel arch trim to the under side protection panel which you can see is fairly large and cover much of the underside of the engine? bear in mind though they may not have actual part numbers but just classed a lower trim/corner trim etc..its really a case of maybe printing off the part you see that matches the broken section on your car and they would be able to go by that instead..

Thanks for the reply. It looks very much like No. 15 on your diagram. Does it have a name?

Expert:  Robert replied 2 years ago.

Hi..there thanks for your reply..

 

Ok..that part is within the front wheel arch trim section - its does have part name but as suggested above its only mentions it as " Cover, bottom left or right " and thats about it im afraid..There are few part numbers for these - i can give might help aswell as maybe print off that image - circle the part you need and then enquire further with the dealer itself "parts section" ...I do hope this helps further
