    Default front bumper

    hi my front bumper is out of line with the wing it was resprayed by the dealer just before i got it. just got a haynes manual and looked at the how2. now the manual says you take out the top screw a push in the sliding bumper bracket to remove do you think if i take out the top screw and push the bracket in this would align top top piece? or will i have to remove it further?

    Yep, undo the top torx screw in the wheel arche, pull out and reset, it does sometimes need a good bit of force required to clip it in. There is a possibility that the gargae have broke the clips when they did the respray. hth

    Do you mean there is a very slight gap as the bumper goes around under the headlight?
