Default Wheelhouse Extension

I need to replace the right front wheelhouse extension. There'* a huge chunk ripped out of it exposing the windshield washer tank & pump. ( I hit an object on the road that caused this damage ) I've done searches at various websites w/o any luck. Does anyone have a part no. that I can plug into GMpartsdirect? Thanks

Try wheel well or inner fender well.

Mine were broken when I bought the car used. Here'* what I found out when I asked about them. I picked them up at the dealer on Monday.

Okay, I just went to the local GM dealership and ordered the right side wheelhouse extension, cost $29. I also need the 3 lower retainers, there are 5 total that secure the extension. The cost of those retainers is ridiculous at $4 a piece. That is extortionate if I've ever seen it. I accidently ordered a wheelhouse panel (which I don't need) from a GM parts website, so I have that sitting here, it'* made in Taiwan.
So if anyone needs just the wheelhouse panel, they can have this one for the cost of shipping, or I'll look into RMA ing it.

Mark its not this piece is it?
I think they call this a liner though. I broke a hole in it this past winter (ice build up)
as you can see its right behind the drivers side front wheel.

Alright Jim, what we're looking at in your pics is the left side wheelhouse panel. I have a brand new right side wheelhouse panel that I don't need. If you follow that wheelhouse panel 2/3 rds around the fender towards the front of the car you'll run into the wheelhouse extension. the wheelhouse panel overlaps the wheelhouse extension. The wheelhouse extension is secured by 5 push pin retainers (those pop up timer looking fasteners). there are 3 retainers that secure it to the bumper cover & 2 retainers that tie to the air deflector underneath. If i were you I'd just go down to your local GM dealer and buy a left side wheelhouse panel, it'* a fairly easy install. It might cost approximately $25-30.

Hey, I think I need the same peice, only for the rear, drivers side. I went to a GM dealer today and they tried to tell me that it was going to be over 800 just for the peice. I dont know that much about cars, but I know that the peice i need should not be that much. Any suggestions?

Best way to go is find one in a wrecking yard. I cant believe they wanted $800. Is it the inner piece inside the fenderwell you are needing? They have to be thinking of a different piece, or looked up the wrong number.
