    Maybe a fan shroud?

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

  • It connects to the air intake on the driver's side.  I believe it channels air from the fans

  • Any ideas how those gashes got in there?

    Just a guess. Pulley failure or fan blade failure, causing belt or partial fan blade to go flying through the engine compartment.

    I suspect that the top of the fan shroud fell down against the pulleys and the serpentine belt at some time in the past.

    It might be called "upper radiator shroud" or "upper radiator T-bar".

    Ah, so it's plastic! It must fit over the radiator support bar. This is an odd bit of engineering if you ask me. I hope it pushes cold air and not hot.
