    Need help finding bumper parts

    So slid in the snow today and hit a mount of dirt. When I got home I found no real damage except I'm missing pieces of my front bumper!

    I'm missing the piece that covers the tow hook hole and the air flow vent looking thing on the side of the bumper. Also I'm missing two of the push screws (plastic) that hold in the front of the wheel well cover. They all just popped off when i hit.

    Does anyone know where to find these things? I know I can go to a body shop and have them get them for me but they will up charge a bunch I'm sure and they literally pop in. I'd love to order them online and install myself if possible. Thanks! Car info is in sig.

    As far as those pop-pins go, your subaru shop should have those in stock. I literally had a similar situation happen to me a couple months ago, slid into a ditch in a big snow storm. (stock tires are crap in snow!)Luckily the only thing that happened was i lost the 3 pop-pins on the passenger side front fender well, same as you. When i took my car in for an oil change they replaced them for free under warranty. Remember your car should have a 3 year/30k mile bumper to bumper warranty. So check that out. As far as the pieces to your bumper, I cannot speak as to if the warranty will replace those or not.

    Yeah I'm gonna check back there tomorrow for the parts. The irony of the situation is I just put the summer tires back on because we were supposed to have warm weather from here on. Surprise snow storm

    If anyone knows of a place other than the dealer please chime in. Thanks!

    Thanks all for replies. In fact I went back today and dug through the snow and grime and found both pieces about 10 feet away. Both looking good after cleanup expect for a broken clip I glued back on. Still missing the push screws but I have extras from installing mudflaps so that worked out.

    Wanted to add one last thing. Anyone who was debating whether or not the stock tires are safe for snow driving I did an actual test and these were the results. They are not just like any other car you've driven in the snow without snow tires. They are like ice skates! Please for your own safety and the safety of your car get AT or snow/winter tires. It makes a huge difference!
