Need to know name of Part

Hello everyone,
I'm new here and need to know what is the name of the plastic cover sort of thing that covers the radiator and air conditioner. I've front ended my boxter. I'd like to know about getting it repaired etc.

Probably just air scoop. The radiators and condensers need cleaning.

A picture of the remnants of the damaged part would be better. I can't see anything broken in your picture other than what appears to be a split in the structure above one of the A/C hoses.

Hi again,

There is a air scoop that takes the air right to the coils. Some plenum.

Fan housing? Or is that on the back side?
