I had 20's on the pat and one of my plastic bolt things (I don't know what they're called) came off and made the tire rub on the inside. Needless to say I have a pretty big hole in the plastic wheel well and I was wondering if anyone has had to replace it.

I know I could call the dealer but to be honest, they're probably going to jerk me around and charge me an arm and a leg.

Any help is great.
Thanks

I think it is called a Fender splash shield. I think it costs about $40. If it is a dealer with a good parts department they will be helpful and not try to over charge you. It is a quick job to replace. I bet it will take you no time to replace. The push pins (or whatever they are called) are pretty cheap.

Are you missing the splash panel or just the rivet holding it in. I had to replace the drivers side rear view mirror and could not find it on any aftermarket parts website had to finally go to the dealer. To help you in your research for an aftermarket Mopar part go to the dealer and get a Part # and quote. The part # will help you to research for the aftermarket Mopar part. If its the rivet take a look at this http://www.mcmaster.com/#rivets/=9mfcje and click on push-in. Are you talking about the ribbed rivets or the expanding rivets. No matter which you are looking for you can buy them at Lowes. Lowes has a big section of auto body hardware, clips and fasteners. Or since your in Albany go to Fastenal http://www.fastenal.com/web/locations.ex look for one near your home their are like 5 in the Albany area. Fastenal is the costco of hardware any-type of hardware you want they have it all, including auto body hardware. Good luck.
