The scuttle (the plastic part that covers the front underside of the car) came loose and now part of it is missing. -
Answer 1
Is this part located on the lower part of the front bumper? -

Yes, it is on the bottom side of the engine but not part of the bumper. -
Comment 2
I think its called an Undercar Shield $283 available at : http://www.pelicanparts.com/euro/catalog/shopcart/W088/POR_W088_BDYchs_pg1.htm#item5 -
Answer 2
Good grief, don't replace it with plastic crap! Read this: http://www.dieselgeek.com/servlet/Detail?no=374 Mine was $280 SHIPPED, it took less than 20 minutes to install this peace of mind. -
