You need a new flow valve/sensor and the fluid needs to be drained and replaced. The part and fluid alone is expensive.

#2537 of 2539 Remove air dam refector
Nov 24, 2013 (5:05 am)
OK, long story short: I struck a small/medium sized animal on the highway the other night. The only damage was a broken air dam reflector. Anyway, I bought a replacement reflector for my '04 Rendezvous and decided to install it yesterday. Well, there are 4 screws that hold the original air dam reflector in place. That should be easy to remove and replace, right? Nope.
I tried everything to get these screws to budge. From the looks of it, the screws go through the plastic deflector, then goes through metal. Needless to say, it's on there pretty securely and I tried everything to loosen those screws. Ratchet, wrench, vice grips, you name it.
Has anyone here ever had to remove their air dam reflector? If so, how did you get it loose? Any help would be appreciated.

>If so, how did you get it loose?
Do those "screws" appear to be plastic and sit in a small surround that looks like a washer?
I bet they operate like pop rivets. You get a small thin screwdriver under the "head" and lift it. That allows the expanders on the end to collapse allowing the whole unit to pull back out of the plastic layers.

Thanks for the reply. No, the screws are metal. However, they do sit in a small surround that resembles a washer. Still, I did take your advice and tried a small screwdriver under the head and tried to lift. No dice. They won't budge. When I first looked at taking this thing off yesterday, i figured this would be an easy job. I had no idea these "screws" would be so pesky.
