    Under car there is 4 holes to use push plug thing in. I'm looking for 4 new ones as 2 have broke, 1 half broke and one on way out. It plugs under engine. Name of it? So i can look for them please. Thanks

    If you mean the plastic pull out rivets underneath that connect the bottom of the bumper extension to the chassis, just leave the plugs in place and use self tapping screws into them instead of the rubbish pins Vauxhall fit

    Facelift and the bracket that goes in the square hole and headlight screws into that to secure.

    I rather have plastic rivet. Not sure if self tapping screws are ideal as i might damage summat behind it! Lol

    all thats behind the bottom of the bumper where the rivet goes is the subframe , there is no way of damaging anythingbut if you want the rivets just go to the dealer and explain what you want and theyll prob have them on the shelf at about 20p each

    Lol, you're screwing into a plastic rivet housing that's in the subframe, nothing there to damage and a DAMN sight easier to remove every time you need to get the bumper off, but up to you of course, as Mark says, they're cheap enough to buy
