This is a piece of lower molding that attaches bumper and wheel arch liner together .it wont cause any running issues body need to be resecured.you may need new clips to reattach

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

Ok only had first picture .this actually looks to be a pick up for tpms sensor .its suppossed to be stuck to the arch liner .it will need to be reattached either gluied or drilled and bolted

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

Sorry tpms its for tire pressure pickup .you can glue it but you will have to get under car to get proper access

Hi Kevin, thanks. How much should it cost to take it to a local mechanic, approx, Is there a replacement part I need to buy ?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Also I will rate you now ..but I hope you can answer follow up questions if I have any. I will be doing some research on this topic.

I wouldnt expect more that $40-50 just to reattach no parts needed
