Title: Rear bumper fitting
Post by: davidbuttigieg on 10:18, Wed 28 November 2012
Do they all fit that badly ?

I was planning on removing the plastic pins (cutting them rather then remove them, cos the torx screws are all rusted and won't turn) and drill new holes so that the corner of the bumper fits as it should to the arch. Also fabricate new lower bumper brackets and remove the plastic blocks.

What do you think ?

Will it be a problem as I'm running 195x50x15 tyres and lowered -30 ? as its already close as it is but I reckon it shouldn't as the bumper will rise by about 10mm

Panel gaps aren't exactly consistent.  :lol:

I gave up trying to line up my front bumper with the indicators and front grill etc. Have you already removed the rear bumper? It might be that the rear bumper mounts at the rear arches have rotted away that's a common problem.

Yes I've already removed it and there's no rust.. just wrongly placed holes  :)

I think thats the only solution to get it properly lined..
