    It's an air deflector. It forces air to have to go through the radiator, instead of being able to go under it.

    It's held on by plastic push rivets, available at any parts store, but it's probably damaged now.

    Yeah, me too and it's not an extended warranty item so it's a little pricey at the dealer.
