Front end parts diagram?

I had a jousting match with a racoon earlier this year. He won - cracked my bumper cover and bashed the fog light right off its mounts. I got in there to look the other day and the fog light is toast - the mounting ears are all broken. Similarly, the plastic (?) that those ears mounted to - the assembly to which the fog light was screwed - is all smashed up too.

Does anyone have an exploded parts diagram of that area so I can figure out what I need to replace?

Thank you

Dave

I had the same thing happed a few years ago....you are looking at the radiator support to be replaced....best price I found was rockauto.com bout $125 back then....check out realoem.com for the diagram...Its not hard to replace but you will have to remove the radiator, I was able to replace it without opening the ac condenser, thereby keeping the AC system sealed.

Dammit, this is a stupid design I just was poring over this picture trying to figure out why it would be ONE HUGE PIECE and then saw your post.

What a pain in the *** for one fog light. I need someone to back into me and pay for this

Thanks for all the info,

Dave

I had the exact same thing happen to my Mini. I hit a possum and broke my left foglight completely off. Luckily though, only one support broke. The other two were intact (The foglight housing broke in pieces still attached to the other two support ears). Stupid desgin really. I flirted with the idea of replacing that whole plastic support but instead just bought a new foglight, attached it to the 2 remaining supports, and called it a day. Looks good as new.

Mine got hit by a big piece of metal thrown up by an eighteen-wheeler. The top two supports were broken. I was able to glue them back on with some additional small plastic bits added to the back side. Installed a new foglight and was good to go.
