Default Re: Defelector spring

I've been using some select hardware store springs which affixed with wires, or attached to a bar on the far side. (?)

This is not precision grade; deflectors help airflow at low speed.

I called around, and found a dealer who had three on hand and sold them to me for $25 CDN. Now I just need to find a fourth one somewhere...

Funny story: I finally acquired four springs and I was finally ready to attach my air dam with springs again rather than with bolts. I was taking apart my struts and springs anyways, so I figured it would be a great time to do this. Having watched the Richpin video, I was all set.

The car was up on jackstands, the tires were off and I was ready to pull out those pushpin fasteners when I noticed something was amiss...

MY AIRDAM WAS MISSING.

Umm... oops?

I suspect that on my drive to Sat Catharines, I bottomed out a few times on the QEW and that may have forcibly separated the air dam from the under tray.

Needless to say, that particular project is now on hold.

About 8 years ago we had small snowstorm with some accumulation before commute to work.

When i pulled into parking lot, someone pointed out that something seemed to be dragging below my car (a spring let loose on one side of the dam).
That same day, another guy who drove a 'Neon', reported that his air dam
had also been lost.

If it's any consolation, I didn't even know I was supposed to have an air-damn until this thread
