Front Driver's Side Wheel Well Lining/Molding

Hey all - have an '05 9-2x Aero. On a recent road trip, the wheel well lining/molding on the front driver's side fell loose and my tire rubbed off quite a bit of it. I took out the old one which is torn apart but have had a really tough time finding a new one - I only seem to be able to find passenger-side molding.

From what I've seen on the forum, the molding is specific to the Saab, so an Impreza molding wouldn't fit. Any suggestions/thoughts on where I can find the driver's side front molding? Any help appreciated!

Last I had checked someone out there was selling a one piece knock off that sort of worked...  Can't find the ones I bought in my emails.  I'll see if I can find the actual parts in my spare parts pile in the garage.

Anyone have any luck finding a driver side replacement?  Our son managed to 'lose' his.

I've found a few passenger side, but of course that's not the one we need.

06-07 Impreza/WRX wagon liner should fit properly. I haven't tried it but numerous people on the FB group said it works. Generic ones are cheap from Rockauto.

Excellent - worth a try.  Thanks!

*Update* Rockauto out of stock, but CarParts.com had it for $22.49

Impreza liner almost fits.  Not enough to keep me from trying to find OEM parts.

"Almost fits" is good enough for my son's car, but if it were for mine I'd keep looking for OEM as well.
