    Lost 'Tow Hook Cover'

    Hey All, I have a 2011 WRX and have lost the 'Tow Hook Cover' lower right front bumper and have order a new one. The place I ordered it from said he has sold a lot of them...anyone else lost theirs? Think I might put some silicone sealant in the tab holes before snapping in the new one. FYI If you lose yours it has to be painted first.

    I've heard this from quite a few people. Seems to be a frequent problem.

    Cost was $19.00 but getting it painted was another $30.00. It also needs to be primed and sanded etc.

    i have seen 2 or 3 people post a thread just like this, although ive never lost my tow hook cover, on the front bumper drivers side of the side of the bumper theres a little "intake" thing right infront of the tire.

    you have to go to the dealer.They will order the part for you & they will have to paint it.

    thanks for your reply
    unfortunately in my country it will be quite expensive to order from dealer, and i will have to wait for 4-5 weeks
    does anyone know where to buy used part?
