2013 Focus SE - air deflector damage? Advice needed.



Tire tread on the highway caused front end damage. I "think" this damaged part is the air deflector. Correct? Does anyone know what the repair costs might be? 2013 SE. Thanks in advance.



PS: could be part 8b384?

Not understanding this. You can probably get that part on line and replace it yourself much cheaper than auto collision center. It probably is held in place with the split rivet or push pin type fasteners.

That illustration looks like a Fusion front bumper so that is probably not the correct part number.
Check this that was posted a few days ago.

That diagram posted is a 2012+ Focus, but the picture is of the Focus Electric. The notches around the headlamps say Focus not Fusion.

The corner piece is 17626 on the lh side, probably the same on the other side, the 8b384 is the center piece underneath.

I see the difference but did you mean the diagram is a Focus electric and the picture is a 2012+?
The photo shows the the bulge for the fog lamp opening and the lack of the two horizontal ridges that start just at the front of the wheel lip.

Yes, the diagram is of a 2012+ Focus electric as opposed to the standard model, but the cut line for the headlamps are the exact same, so is many of the details such as the lower panels.

Moved to "MK3 Focus" because this is a model specific question.

The diagram is a 2012+ Focus electric and is NOT the diagram for the bumper of the vehicle in the picture.
While the parts may be similar they may or may not work on the vehicle in the picture.
I do not see how advising someone that the part is probably the same is being helpful.

It is the same part as shown in the proper diagram. Just because the rest of the picture might not match doesn't mean I haven't looked at the correct diagram, which calls out the same part base number and looks the same.
