I'm not going to laugh at anyone. A couple of weeks ago I accidentally put the front of my PT up on a curb. When I backed out, the clip caught on the backside of the curb, the lower front clip was pulled off of the mounting clips and bolts. It broke the front clip at the two long clips just above the front side of the fender.

Result - need a new front clip. Little Pete is going to the body shop tomorrow. A little inconvenince and about $800.00 will get him back on the road again.

I have really missed driving the little feller.

Moral of this story - beware of the dreaded concrete curb back drag !

I would search ebay, and you might not be able to match colors. I also would not laugh, I've lowered my PT and was successful in dodging any curbs, lips, bumps, etc., until two weeks ago and yes, it was that dreaded concrete parking curb that got me. I wanted to cry when I backed off it....

It happens! Drove too far over a cement parking block (why are these things even needed anyway) was able to repair the bumper, but it cost me.

Junkyard.
There are always a parts car or 2 on forums, but shipping would kill on such a big piece.
'01 - '05 are the same, and I think a turbo one would fit.
