Welcome. I have a problem. I miss the part in the front spoiler. I do not know what I should buy. I do not have photos of what it looks like in reality.






































I think it is this element.

You will need Part #1182, 33516, X2167.

Those parts are very important for proper airflow to the radiator.

The lower valance is a body color match item. The lower extensions are rubber. And you will need some hardware to assemble it.
Make sure the bolt holes on the bumper cover aren't ripped or torn badly. Otherwise you'll have to have them either repaired or replace the bumper cover. If they are torn and your cover is really wavy I would replace it with a "Tru-Flex" bumper cover. 

Good luck!

Do you think the lower rubber extensions are necessary? They sort of look like a squeegee; I am thinking of removing mine. Not sure if it will have that "somethings missing" look.

Those look like bumper cover retainers. I'll have to crawl under mine to see what the body shop used to attach the lower valance and rubber air dams. 

@Duane, I think those rubber air dams are necessary to help promote proper air flow to the radiator.  Plus the lower you can keep a lower spoiler or air dam to the ground on a car, the less air that can get underneath the car lessening the "lift" on the front end at high speeds. My theory is if they (GM) engineered it...it get's put back on. Plus you will have that "missing part" look to all of us that own these cars. Wink

Good illustration Bob. Thumbs Up
