Wheel well

Hey guys.. im new to the forum and a girl so be easy on me.. Back in august while coming home from vacation I ran over a semi tire in the middle of the road with my driver side tire ( my choice was to run into other cars that had got into an accident due to this tire in the roadway or run over the tire) when i eventually pulled over i saw that my wheel well was gone and the black gaurd underneath the bumper was hanging down, i also need to have my bumper painted.

I have looked and looked for the parts in auto wreaking yards but have had no luck.. does anybody know a cheap place where i could get these parts?

Also does anybody know if i drive around in snow/rain without a wheel well if this will affect my electrical of my engine? some people have told me that snow and moisture could get up in my engine with the wheel well protecting the engine....

Thanks!

They are ~40 bucks at the dealership........ I haven't found anywhere cheaper.

The mounting hardware and all that good crap is almost as expensive, though I have found ways around it.

Ive killed 2 liners on either side. It is real exciting on at highway speeds.....

Yupo Im with Flipper here. It ends up being around 80 bucks when all is said and done and the dealership is one of the only places you can get it.

I got it at the dealership and had my mechanic friend put it on.. a month later it fell off.. come to find out when i went in to a body shop to have my car looked at the bumper is a loose and holds the wheel well on there so it wasnt secure.. Yay for me having to have a body shop fix it! not.. $300 to $400 dollars later. at least if it falls off a month later for no reason i will have someone to yell at

I've lived without for at least two years now - at all 4 corners. I deal with solid amounts of rain but no snow. I know snow/salt is way worse. But I've had no detrimental effects so far.
