Speed Bumps Smashed My Lower Trim

People,

Apt complex has bad bumps, and even though I go slow, they hit my lower pass side trim and hence got entangled around my front tire! AAA untangled it. Now, I want their insurance to pay. This could be a battle. May not even be worth it.

So, just to be prepared, where can I find a new trim pc for my 2010 LT sport pkg cobalt (non turbo)? I will pop it on myself, if it comes to it. If it isnt so $$, may not bother to hound them for threir insurance Co's name/claims.

Thanks!

Thanks, LS, but right now, no picture- guess I should get one thoughg. Beats me how in the heck it happened. Wierestest thing in my life. Stinkin bumps. The good drivers have to pay the price for the dumb /reckless speeders in a parking lot.

To explain further, its the lower trim, closest to the road, horizontal, below the passenger door. Starts from rear botom whel fender, goes to about the rear part of the bottom front fender.

Thaks

No, not fender liners, but the pretty/factory pained (same color as car) trim. Maybe I could pull up a photo of a sport pkg LT, shouldnt be hard, eh?

It's just a base model with an SS kit on it. You should get a pic of the damage though. If you think you want to go through with it you will need to report it and contact the apartment complex asap.

Thnaks, people. Yes, its probably the side skirt (?). Right- gotta slow down for sure on bumps, which is what I do. But now, Im just needing to get a cost on buying a new side skirt. Whare would you go for pricing? Is there a preferred cobalt/GM site that sells these trim pieces?

I mean, if its not much, I wont even bother to chase them for a claim......
