    I tried uplaoding a 347KB fileand it just wont let me but if you look under the front of the car below the engine if you have an airpan 2X3 thats what i have--not sure if she knoclkedit off,or someone elas did fromtheir car.It kind of fits so im assuming its mine--what i need to know is it just for really high speed driving or just decorative My wife packs a gun so the trunkoption is out

    Umm...that's the only draw back to making sure your wife can protect herself...sometimes it's from you! HA HA HA!

    This could be an air diffuser that helps direct the airflow under the vehicle. Kinda of an aerodynamic thing more than functional piece. This is just my thoughts, nothing that I know for sure to be true.

    Re: 2008 sts v air dam

    tried remounting it--- she puled out svereal sections where it attached so will need a new one--Looking at what it covers up,there are several houses that are exposed w/o the dam--so Imafraid of running over a piece of wood or small rocks that might brealk the hose--so imgoing to bring it in and get delaer to replace it--figureitll be several hundred bucks,but it beats having the car break a hose in iddle of nowhere

    BACK FROM THE DEAD

    I noticed the aft section of mine is hanging down. I was looking to replace but $180 is LOLno.

    Looks like i will be trimming up the back as the front of the deflector is still intact.

    I got my replacement from carpartswholesale for about $50. It is made of a better material than stock and fits perfect.
