Stuck in the middle

Once again I forgot about the low clearance of my front end when parking. And again the middle section of my bumper came off. This time it didnt come off entirely but stuck to the underside of my car. I thought I had a tree branch under my car and kept on driving. When i came to my first stop I got out to clear the obstruction and found it was my center piece. I have searched the internet to find a replacement part but no one even shows it in any parts diagram. It is a fairly small snap in part that is located in the lower, center part of the front bumper of 2009 slk, not AMG. Can anyone help me ID the part so I can buy a new one? By the way, I am going to mount a thin aluminum sheet under the front bumper so if I run up on another parking thing my bumper will not get hung up.

Post up your VIN number and I'll get the part number for you - if it's listed as a separate item.
