I don't know what the technical name for this part is. It is a metal air scoop under the engine that directs air over some cooling fins. It hangs down far enough to get caught on parking lot deviders. We've banged ours twice and severly bent it all out of shape. I removed it and beat it back into shape as best I could but it is really thick steel and is difficult to bend back. I need to stop by the dealer this week and order up a new one I guess. Anyone had this problem yet?
