Is anyone parting out a car ? I need a wheel skirt, passenger side, and 2 'fasteners'
And otherwise, . . any suggestions on avoiding expensive part from dealer are welcome.

It apparently flew off, maybe due to bump in road?
I'd driven it for over a month . . . but, I'd just increased tire pressure to 40 lbs.

I've gotten no reply from car-part.com - - but, that only offers "quarter panel" or "quarter panel extension" as part names.

ALSO: thanks to authors of 2 postings:
- use a dab of silicone to secure it
- these fasteners are a-ok when done right: silicone not needed [!]

Go on ebay.com type "insight oxygen sensor". You will come accros a guy who sales red one and the green in his store for about $139/$129. I tried offering him 45/55/and 65 wont sale less than $110. Also there is some one selling a silver one for $100. Good luck let me know how it went.

I need a silver one (passenger side) myself but $100+ for one in "used" condition is a bot high seeing how it can be had for @$150 new online at Majestic or other online Honda sellers. I've contacted parts resellers/junkyards but they want top dollar too.

You know, it's not rocket science to knock out a mold & lay up fiberglass to make these . . .
I've half a mind to just go that route . .
