Deflector Shield

2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD
Well, for the 2nd time in 6 months a piece of flying road debris has struck my poor 2016.5 GT :( Luckily instead of a road gator (blown tire) this time it was an asphalt shingle or something similar, so much less damage this time, but damage none the less.

It looks like I lost the driver's side "deflector shield" (part KD53-56-115B) (diagram of the part here.... 2013-2016 Mazda CX-5 Deflector Shield KD53-56-115B |'s the small aero flap right in front of each of the front wheels (like a little splash guard). From what I can see on the one that's intact, it looks like there is one screw and two "plugs" that attach it to the under-body panels. But my questions are (if anyone can help)....

1) Is it really just as easy to just bolt on a new one?

2) What is the part numbers for the right screws and plugs?

3) Is any disassembly of the fender well trim required?

Any advice, tips or tricks is greatly appreciated, I really don't want to have to take it back to the body shop for this.
