Default Lowered car problems, I ripped the bumper off....

What's the name of this part? I want to call the dealer and order it but I'm not too sure how to find out the name of this bracket? It's under the headlight, one on each side, two screws hold it into the wheel wheel and one scre goes under the headlight.



This is a shot looking down from the top, use the fog light for reference



Other side

You're not even tucking tire!

Not lowered car problems, bad driver problems!

Good news is it's a cheap and easy fix.

I got the bracket at a Subaru Dealership Parts department for $12 ish.

If you describe it and have a VIN, they'll find it. Even easier if you bring in the old one.

There are a couple similar ones in that area if I remember right. One by the headlights that is straighter, and a little shorter, and another closer to the door that is a little more curved shaped.

Yeah could be driver problems too, but if you ever come to Michigan, you'll know that being even slightly lowered and these roads don't mix.

Yeah, I did the same thing in my car going up a slight incline, except it just ripped the clips out and scratched the hell out of my bumper. It matches all the other scratches on the front, so I am not worried about it.
