    confused VXR rear insert.

    went to fit my one of these last night but it wasnt having it unless I took the bumper and forced it in... any ideas as how to get it in without breaking the flimsy thing? also I think I have to remove a carrier from either side!?

    if it been painted use a stanley knife and scrape the paint off each clip, bit of a pain but should make it easier, try to put something between body and inside of bumper so u can apply a bit more pressure without the bumper flexing
    hope this helps

    that helps Mr Z, was thinking about sanding it down abit.. trouble is the bumper and the insert have both been sprayed seperate colours so could be excess paint in the actual inserts.
