2008 Shelby GT air deflector

I have a 2008 Shelby GT. I was driving down the road the lower air deflector got tore off. I bought a new one and when I went to install it, found that it was to short. It will mount ok on the back side, but it is to short to reach the bumper cover. I talked to ford and they seem to think the one I have is the right one, but I need a filler panel. for the front. They cannot seem to find one in the system. Does anyone know if there is a filler panel? If so maybe have the part number? and or picture? It Is the piece that goes from the bottom of the front bumper cover back under the motor.

 

 

Thanks

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by air deflector but keep in mind that your Shelby GT has a Ford Mustang California Special front fascia. Perhaps your parts person can look at a California Special to determine what part you are in need of.

Yeah, what Steve said. You got one for the MUSTANG GT ......... Order one for the California Special.

 

Steve, it is the short Black Trim that hangs straight down under the Bumper that usually hits the Curb when you pull to far forward.

I assumed that's the area he was referring to but if i recall there are more than one piece down there but if its the piece that's taken out on curbs then you're absolutely right. Perhaps the photo below will help the OP.

It says this lower air deflector/belly pan will fit 2005-2009 mustang gt, and California specials, and the Shelby GT. Good luck.

That's the part I was thinking of but I believe David thinks the OP is looking for the splitter.

Ford says that the deflector for the Mustang GT & California special are the same. I just need the piece that connects the bumper cover to the deflector. I think its the piece that hangs down. Anyone know the part number? Ford cant seem to find it.

I think that you are looking for part #17C947B which is the filler panel from the CA Special front facia to the stock mustang air deflector which you can see in the pic above from Steven.

Yeah, that is the Part I was thinking of. That part of it that hangs straight down usually hits the Curb Stops in Parking Lots.

The part missing is the lower panel that mounts behind the bumper. I had to replace it on my wife's Shelby GT. The part number is 7R3Z-17C947-AA. I will try and attach a photo because I removed mine with I installed a GT500 splitter on my Shelby Gt.
