Hey guys

EDIT Apologies for the massive pics :D

I'm missing a vent on my front bumper.

I think they are called the "brake vent"

As you can see, I am missing it on the left hand side

Anyone got one of these lying around?

Cheers

I mounted my driving lights behind them. Shines through em at night.

They're called brake duct vents.

go to ford and ask for an EF 17D750 A
they shouldnt be too expensive. otherwise you can go to a wrecker and you might be lucky to get a white one.

Sweet, are they actually functional?

Because if they are just for looks, I'd rather remove them.

Does anyone have a procedure for doing so?

Cheers

No, they could be if you run a duct to the brakes but it would be pointless.
