    I have this problem on mine too mate, and mine is a facelift! I need to have a look at it at some point. There seems to be a slight gap between the top of the bumper and the headlight, doesn't seem to pull the bumper in at these points.

    Right because you have used the prefacelift panel theres and extra bit that sticks up on it, what i found to do was when I done my mates Vectra was to fold the bit over, then he held the top of the bumper down while i screwed it in and it pulled it in lovely

    Is the groove part of the bumper that the wing slots into slightly bent up? you might need to heat it up abit and push it down, sounds like its not catching the last slot of the wing guide

    pretty sure its catching. I don't think the bolt i'm using is pulling the bracket enough. I'm using a headlight bolt and a plumbing olive as a boss type thing to let the bracket travel bypassing the inner wings as they are pre face also.

    Hope that makes sense
