If you didn't completely tear it off of the car (like you ripped the piece off the car and destroyed the holes on the bottom of the nose and you didn't destroy the rubber piece), you can purchase the plastic screws and nuts to reattach it to your car. You can get them from the parts department, or pay the local service department to reattach it for you at their fee.

I left mine off. It keeps rocks and debris from getting into the rotors and behind the wheels. I don't go offroading.

Grammar police. As I always say:
Please use proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
It could mean the difference between helping your
uncle, Jack, off a horse; or helping your uncle jack off a horse.

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.

just take it to the dealer. If you put the loose screws in the wrong "wholes" you might break something.Nothing more dangerous then a loose screw in the wrong place.

Just reattch it. But don't re-use those crappy plastic fasteners, go to Home Depot (or similiar) and buy some bolts, lock nuts and washers. Also, there's no need to take it to the dealer. If you can't figure out how to place a bolt through a pre-existing hole, and turn a wrench you have serious problems.

It is an air dam and it directs air from raising your car off the ground at highway speeds.

So I imagine that if you never drive on the highway that you won't need it and if you never go off road you will never damage it.

Automobile manufacturers aren't likely to add one penny of parts and labor to your car for no use.

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.
