Underbody splash cover damage - E53 AMG

So did not heed to what my dealer warned me - while parking dont get over the sidewalk... well just broke my underbody plastic trim on the drivers side. What is concerning is that some kind of cooler or oil assembly is hanging off it (attached pic has a hose you can see towards the rear of the broken piece). I just temp fixed in place but would appreciate help on part and/ or risk. Really busy Mon Tue to find dealer time.

Thanks in advance.

Based on some part diagrams looks like this is the radiator shield. Just need some validation.

Ouch! The beepers didn't go off?

I have been pretty paranoid about just such a thing and almost always turn on the camera just to check how close I am to the sidewalk or wheel blocks.

Hope it is a minor repair for you.

If this is indeed the radiator front shield, then not expensive neither hard. That said, more concerned about what this part supports. Seems like some kind of cooler assembly, either for oil cooling or something for radiator... and very surprised that it is supported by a flimsy piece of plastic. Of course, don't take my word for it, this is an initial cursory look. If someone can validate, or when i do change, I will confirm what the reality is.

I think #1 from the list below is what I need:
