    Default VXR rear diffuser. Broken

    So I received a special gift this after noon from the awesome Autovaux.

    Pulled it out of the box and think I may have already broken it....

    The left hand lug has snapped on one side. The other is still fine. But is this going to be an issue when I come to fit it?



    If so, any ideas how to fix it?

    Thanks lads...

    I wouldn't reckon so mate, one lug on mines broke and it's as solid as a rock since fitting nearly 2 years ago.

    Don't forget to drill the two ends for the plastic rivits that your old one will have. Its easier to do off the car than on. I forgot when i did mine

    It just stops the ends hanging down.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Don't worry about the broken lug. I got a vauxhall repair shop to fit mine and he snapped the lug right in front of my eyes He looked at me and said, it will be fine. No problems since it got fitted.
