Default Broken Plastic piece replacement?

I walked out to my car today to find my Black plastic piece where the hood meets the windshield broken. I don't know what it would be called or even if I can find another one unless I got it from a wrecking yard or something. Any ideas would help. It's for a New edge.

Sweet Jesus, $200 dollars? Is it carved out of the highest quality plastic that has ever existed? Ugh!

I think its cauld the windshield cowl. $200 is a bit steap. You might be able to find one at a local junk yard or pick-n-pull. Or get a good plastic repair kit. Or super-glue the crack back together. Or learn to live with it... Good luck...

That's what I was thinking. Possibly just gluing it and seeing how bad it looks.

mine has a crack in it also...ive been thinking about trying to melt the plastic back together with a soldering iron(plastic welding). if that works, id try to fill in any voids with other random plastic and sand smooth. just havent gotten around to it yet b/c the car needs more important things...

I've had good luck with spare parts for mustangs on eBay. I just found one of those windshield cowls for my 94 mustang on there for 29.99. Not sure what year your is but it's worth a look.
