Each side piece uses 5 x 7mm head screws and the center piece has a 10mm head bolt on each end. Really easy to change.

Air Deflector Replacement - Front Bumper Fascia
Removal Procedure


Click the image to open in full size.
1. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
2. Remove the center air deflector bolts.
3. Remove the air deflector from the vehicle.
Installation Procedure
1. Position the center air deflector between the side valances.
Notice
Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
2. Install the center air deflector and attaching bolts.
Tighten
Tighten the air deflector bolts to 7 Nm (62 lb in).
3. Lower the vehicle.

A lot of people take them off without fully realizing that the car needs the air dam to breathe. Has the car been lowered? That may be why they were removed. Dont forget the end fairings. They smooth the airflow under the car and are quite important for higher speed stability.

Car has not been lowered. Looked like the old air dam had been damaged or knocked off.The two center brackets/fasteners were still attached. Side ones are on the car. Thanks again for the great info. It took just a few minutes to install.
