What Is This Part Called? 2006 Mk6 Fiesta

Recommended Posts

Hi, due to the bad weather, my poor 2006 Mk6 Fiesta slipped off of the road and into a ditch. I was not going very fast so the bumper etc are all fine, but the large black plastic mount behind the bumper has cracked and broken. It is much more rigid than the bumper and has not survived. It stretches the whole length of the engine and is the same piece of plastic the head light bulbs screw on to.

If anyone knows what this is called so I can get a replacement, I would be very grateful. I have marked it in red.

Thanks for your post. I gathered it would not be a quick job as I can see the headlights are bolted to it. Are the rads actually bolted to it or just algigned by it?

Thanks again.

Ok thanks. How much do you think it would cost me in labour if I were to book it in at a garage and give them a new slam panel to fit.

Weather is not too bad.

There was light snow earlier, but it didn't settle. I don't think there have been any cancellations today so you should be fine. Have a good time in Austria.
