Default 2005 PT Cruiser GT Convertible 2.4 HO Turbo

I'm having a problem with my car. I recently had and accident with it the damaged the front bumper cover. I took in to get repaired and when I got it back a piece of trim was missing. Behind the bottom of the front bumper cover is a splash guard that cover the lower radiator support it runs the length of the bottom of the front bumper cover and runs to the bottom front of the inner plastic fender well liners. It was there when I bought the vehicle in 2005 but the body shop and the dealer show nothing on that part at all. I thought it might be called a plastic belly pan or splash guard under the front bumper. I know it was there because I changed to oil and that trim piece was there. If someone would take a picture of it, tell me what the part is called and a part number would be great. The dealer and the body shop think I'm crazy because they never show it as being installed. I just want to have it repaired back to the way it was with ALL the parts just like it was before the accident. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Could it be the engine splash guard? I'm trying to find a picture.

See if this helps...

Maybe the chin spoiler? I don't know.

It's not the serpentine belt cover that's on the passenger side fender. This should be the front engine splash pan cover. It's right beneath the front bumper. That name makes sense but the dealer and body shop show nothing there on their schematic. A picture or a part number would be great. Thanks.

How about the link I gave you with a U-Tube video and another link to splash shields on eBay?

The very first part of the video shows the guy taking off the splash shield before doing the timing belt.

Is this the piece you are missing?




This may be the part in the following link. But it's hard to tell.

Doesn't look quite right. I think it was larger and covered more area underneath. If I had known that they weren't going to replace it I would have kept the damn thing. Then I'd have some thing to refer to that they could find. It may be specific to the PT Cruiser Convertible. I need some one with a Cruiser like mine to find a picture of it. Sorry I didn't receive the U-Rube link. Thanks,

The photo I posted was from my 2005 GT wagon. It should be the same under the front.

Well I've owned mine since it was brand new in 2005 it has 53000 original miles on it. I've changed the oil and filter numerous times. I don't know what's going on but mine had a front engine splash shield on it right below the bottom fascia probably for aerodynamics to allow the air to flow under the car rather than create drag flowing into the engine compartment. There an answer to the problem somewhere just keep trying. Thanks.
