    Default Victim of the snow

    Hope this is in the right place

    52 plate 2.2 dti

    Just had a little too much excitement in the snow and hit a bollard, OSF, thankfully at less than walking pace.

    The light unit doesnt seem to have moved, but on sh!t shield is about 1mm away from the tyre through both locks at worst but there is a very solid bracket holding something (cant really see too well its very dark) and its almost on the tyre.

    I've tried bending it back and I've got more chance of plaiting fog to be honest.

    Any idea what this item is and how do I go about having it NOT pushing the sh!t shield onto my tyre

    Looking forward to reams of excellent advice etc...

    Thanks in advance

    Ok cheers, I'm thinking tomorrow getting the wheel off and giving it a good lump hammering, is this advisable?

    Probably better off taking the front bumper off and see exactly what is pushing on your wheel arch liner before just whacking it
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
