OP, I'll be down that way next summer. If you want to leave off til then PM me. I have the rubber piece off my SS and about half the plastic screws you can have. Not sure he rubber piece is the same as the V6, but screws should work.

If these are the plastic screw & nut fasteners, they are about $5 for each pair from your GM dealer.

Keep it under 150 until you get that fixed.

True, why spend $40 on something you don't need.

I wouldn't put metal bolts on there. If you hit something with those in it'll do a lot more damage. The reason they use plastic is so they break away easily and not damage other things.

Can you imagine if you bent it up into something important? the metal bolts would hold it there.

I've ripped off a few things over the years, mostly due to snow and sliding off into it. The Audi TT Roadster ('01) had a ton of stuff on the underside to take care of air flow without them handling changed quite a bit at uh, highway speeds yeah.

Wait, that wasn't the special magic plastic that fell off, was it? If so you need to take it to your nearest Ford dealer right now and tell them what happened.

This. The fasteners are designed and manufactured that way for a reason.

I've replaced these screws a few times in the past. They can only be a little past finger tight. If you put a screw driver and wrench to these plastic bolts they strip out very easy.
Good luck

How many of these are used to attach the air deflector? I had a little off-road excursion the other day due to icy roads. Hardware and everything ripped clean off and I don't know where it went. In the dark, I didn't notice it was missing. Went back the next morning to try and find it with no luck. All the holes in the bumper plastic are still in one piece, thankfully. Just some scratches to the underside of the bumper cover. I ordered a new air deflector, but since the old one is MIA, I have no idea what kind, or, how many fasteners held it in place. I want to order them now, so I have everything on the way, don't want to wait for the deflector to get here to count the holes. (The obvious solution)

So air deflector came in the mail today, and nuts and bolts showed up a couple days ago. Is there any other hardware to hold the air deflector in place? Clips, or what have you? Like I said earlier, I lost the whole thing, deflector, hardware, all of it, so I'm flying blind. If anyone knows for sure or has a few seconds to run out to the garage and check, your time and response is greatly appreciated.

I think most people here would like to help but, if the grammar and punctuation is extremely bad as it sometimes is, it is hard to offer help to a problem that can not be understood. Not being disrespectful to the OP, just trying to help.

Now to the OP and his question. If it was on there from the factory, put it back on.
