Default What is the name of the part in front of the Windshield

Hi,

Does anyone know what the name of the part is in between the hood and the windshield? I need one for my 1992 full size Blazer. I am not sure what it is called, so I am having a problem searching for one.

Thanks
Stu

Have you tried looking for a "cowl"? I think that's what it's called...

Are you talking about the screens that cover up the lower portion of the cowl? They are cowl screens and LMC carries them all. A junkyard will likely have them for a vastly lower price. Anything from a pickup truck '86 or newer will work.

Hi,

It's the piece that goes directly behind the hood. It covers up the windshield wipers (sort of). It is a metal peice with slots on it. You remove it to get the the wiper motor and etc.. Most newer cars don't have them. I don't think it is called a cowl, the cowl is the entire section behind the motor.

Thanks
Stu

Ah, yes, on the 81+ trucks this is a single sheet metal part. My '90 parts Suburban has this part. I believe it is called the cowl cover, but I do not see that anyone reproduces it. You should be able to pull the part off of any 81-91 K5 or Suburban and any 81-85 Pickup.
