Damaged front window rock shield

Hi everyone: I'm Sorry, I was a little vague with my question that I had asked previously.
Has anyone had their "Front window rock shield damaged"? If so, any suggestions or advice on repairing the "rock shield". Not sure, if it is made of plastic or fiberglass as it seems to be very thin.
This is a 2009 Escape and have been told that it can't be replaced. As this has been discontinued.

In what way is it damaged? Suggest you post pictures.
Indeed the front window/rock shield was discontinued by the manufacturer.

You can't have mine.

I had an 05 Escape 17b and replaced the rock shield material with a flexible plastic like material from Home Depot. It is sold in 4x8 sheet for about $20. It is very easy to cut the replacement piece out of the sheet.

What I can’t tell you, is if the 19 windscreen is similar to the 17 that allows the windscreen material to be removed from the frame for replacement. The color of the new material was almost exact match for the gelcoat and looked great when installed.

If you go to a glass shop they should be able to replace it with some white Lexan which will be a lot more resilient.

I'm familiar with Coroplast and I don't think that's what it is although that could work as a fix ( if that's the problem area ).
Anyway, here are pix of 2009 window rock shield.

Not 100% sure, but I believe this is the sheet at Home Depot
https://www.homedepot.com/p/1-16-in-...3003/202090190

Just says it is a Plastic Material, but it was a perfect solution for the windscreen. It is located on the trim aisle here in the beadboard and paneling area.

I'm also going to use it on my bathroom walls for my Scamp 19 redo as it is a perfect solution for that application as well. Very easy to work with.

Hmmm. Your rock shield is different than ours, but our frame bent and broke away from frame. We had to replace the entire window as the rock guard and window is one piece on our 19'.

I'd still like to hear from OP, Kazmar Rose, as to what the damage is that we are trying to fix.
