structure identification so that it may be replace
#356058 - 07/22/03 03:58 PM

Looking from the front of the Contour there is one flap that hangs down that is a cover for the towing hooks used to pull the car on and off car trailers it is my under standing. Those flaps are attached to some structure that is beginning to hang down evermore. What is this structure called I would like to replace it. This structure seems to cover the front under carriage of the Contour?

It's usually called the "front splash guard"

The older ones are two piece the newer ones are a single peice. I would suggest getting on that is a single piece because lots of dirt tends to college between the two seperate pieces.

I guess this is a dealer only product as well?

we had one that was hanging down on a 96 contour.. when changing the oil i removed it and never put it on correctly... just use a torx screw driver and remove it and then make sure the plastic inserts that go into the cross member under the car are placed in correctly and put the screws back in... aobut 4 under the cross memebe and two on each side right in front of the tires..... sure beats buying another one for about $150.00 from the dealer......

Front splash guard is what I would call it as well. I take mine off each time I change my oil (makes filter access much easier IMO).

If it's a one-piece unit like I have, there are about 9 Torx screws holding it on. Are all the screws in place on your splash guard? If not, I'd suggest replacing those screws first (take one of the screws with you to most any auto parts store, and look in the small trim bits/emergency repair parts section). Might save you a whole lot of trouble.

Since I don't know what year your 'Tour is, I'm just guessing, of course...
