i broke it

well,
i was looking at this forum and all this people posting about their mods so i decided to do something on my 03 tl as well

so first i ordered some fog bulbs and replaced em my self
i got exicited so i got some highbeam bulbs and replaced em by my self then changed the door courtesy bulbs to blue leds

then today i decided to change the signal and parking bulbs to blue ones so i buy some blue leds from CC for parking lights i am trying to get the inner fender off like the manual says

but i decided to try some easier way to replace the bulbs
so i open the hood then start taking the clips off from the black plastic which holds the grill down
and since i wanted to try only on one side first i only took off plastic tabs on right side first, then lifted it a BIT and bam i hear a CRACKING noise
next thing i know that black plastic is in 2 pieces

if u open the hood the plastic has U <---> D written on left end and the right end

so where do i get a replacement??? or should i go to dealer and say it cracked in cold weather??

someone help please

Are you talking about the long piece of plastic that covers the radiator support? If so, those are pretty cheap.

If it's the one I'm thinking about, it's $12.73

But this piece you're best off getting locally....it's too hard to ship without having the same thing happen that happened to yours.

Thus, for the price of a large cheese and pepperoni, your problems are over
