I just found out that I have been driving with a damaged front end recently. It does not look serious but the valence and the two metal frame braces behind the valence are both destroyed. I didn't notice at first because the valence popped back out and covered the damage until I tried to clean it. Anyways, does anyone want to get rid of a valence that is lying around or do you know where I should look? I called the stealer and they gave me a parts quote on the three parts of $345. I think he cut the price because he mentioned other prices first. Is the dealer the only place to get these parts? Thanks in advance for the help.

Dude, talk to Chris at http://www.trdparts4u.com. LIST on that valence is only $128... and the brackets are cheap too.

Dealer tried to rip you a new one bro.

Helpful hint... take the bumper off and swap the valence while it's resting on a table or something.... then put it all back on together.

Thanks for the help. I just realized that I stuck this post in the wrong category, but I don't know how to move it. Anyways, is it hard to remove the bumper?

piece of cake to get the bumper off. 4 bolts in the front... maybe one on each side as well.

make sure you're careful putting it back on... it's easy to scratch the paint.

To make sure you dont scratch the paint [i did on mine] put masking tape on all the parts that you think might make contact and scratch. I figured that one out 1/2 way through :\
