Hi there! I haven't come to this website for a while and now I noticed a much more elaborate forums/sub-forums. Hope I landed in the right sub-forum to post this question.

Anyway, I noticed a loud bumpy noise from the right tires this past Sunday but when I came home I looked around and could not find anything wrong with the tires.

Today (2 days later) I figure out the mysterious noise. It's the piece of -- I don't know what to call this plastic part, placeholder? -- on the right side of the car in the bumper that completely fell off. [See uploaded picture.]

Can you guys tell me what this piece should be called? What do you think I should do? Buy one from dealer and install it myself? My 2015 Forester just came out of the warranty in June. So I guess I will have to pay to get it fixed. But it's shame that this piece can easily fall off under normal driving.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Thank you for the reply. I will buy one and try to install it myself.

Has this ever happened to other forum fellows? I am still figuring if I didn't anything out of the ordinary...

I lost both of those from my 2014 Forester XT Premium when I drove through some water during the Houston floods last year. It was super easy to replace. Replacements were about $25 apiece at the dealer, and it just pops in in an instant.
