    Thumbs up Help Vec C saloon rear ended

    Hi all,

    1st post on here do hope you can help!

    Some guy decided he wouldn't stop at the lights I was sitting at and ploughed straight into the back of me.

    Car has been written off but is just cosmetic damage; bumper, tailgate, bumper bar and poss exhaust. No boot floor impact phew!

    I have bought car back from insurance and now need to source parts to fix.
    Questions I have are:
    Is the saloon bumper the same as a hatch? (53 reg)
    Same question for the bumper bar
    is the tailgate easy to replace?

    Cheers

    Got bumper and reinforcer bar for £50 for local salvage, fitting wasn't too hard.
    only issue I had was the lip in the middle of the bumper (near the lock) won't push in. Is there a knack to this?
    Tried brute force but it keeps popping back out
