Post subject:  '06 Forester bug shield

I'm in the market for a '06 Forester bug shield, but have found contradictory information about after market bug shields. :( I ordered one (Lund L3218479) from autoparts.com, but I couldn see how it would fit properly on my Forester. :roll: Was told that L321579 was the right part # but later saw online that it was the clear version of L3218479. :?: Has onyone out there had any luck in finding an after market bug shield for a '06 Forester?

Hi. Not familiar with aftermarket ones so can't address your question directly, but why not just go with the Subaru one?

Joe,

Thanks for the reply. This is a great forum offerring good info to Subaru owners.

I wanted to have more than one source to choose from since shipping cost can vary widely (the call me "frugal"). :) Also, I've read in this forum that some bug shields were susceptible to strong winds and had been ripped off the hood mounting and actually caused damage to the hood/fenders. Do you know if the Forester application is also susceptible to strong winds? Thanks again.

Hi. They hold up pretty well though any of them can be damaged by strong enough winds like those fans that 'blow dry' the car at the car wash.
