    Default Fog loose - will brackets be broken?

    Just a quick one as it is hammering down out side, I unintentionally assisted in culling the local rabbit community at 5am on the way to work, I checked and my fog works, and is not cracked - but it is totally loose inside the bumper.

    Do you think the mounts will be broken, and if so araldite able? I know its guess work till I remove the bumper, but I could have a new fog ready for when I do if the forum gurus reckon it might be ******ed

    sounds like the lugs inside the bumper have broken, you will have to take off the bumper to be sure.

    Agreed, sounds like one/all of the plastic lugs has gone south. Look on the bright side, it could have been a fox and they're bigger and heavier and cause more damage.

    You can remove the fog without taking bumper off. The panel in front of arch and bumper you can get access. Various size torx. I hit a pheasant and same thing happened. Managed to clag/glue together with some auto motive sealant adhesive. (like sikaflex) and have put it back ............working fine. The replacement were quite expensive on ebay.

    One of mine had been araldited by the previous owner, but snapped again. I tried superglue, and 4 years on the plastic mount is still holding strong.
