Way to fix brocken bug shield?

My oem Toyota bug shield split along the top right corner when washing the truck. Is there a way to glue or meld the split back together so it will hold up to high winds.The split is about a foot long. Thanks

I seriously doubt that it could be fixed anyway that would not look bad especially if it is a foot long crack. Best bet is to buy a new one.

No you don't... In the cosmic scheme of things it's a lot better to feel like a idiot than be like a Schiavo.... The former will pass, the latter is forever....

Just think of it was replacement due to damage. I've had deflectors (some years ago) "take one for the truck" and have to be replaced because of sizeable chunks blown out of them (flying rocks) .

Just don't lean on it next time (which I'm guessing is what happened.....).

FWIW I have the Bugflector II. Bought it in 98, and it's so thick it'll never crack
