    Default Cracked Rear Bumper - Signum

    Somebody in our house, there's only two of there and it wasn't me, reversed our Signum into a stationary object at the weekend.

    It has cracked the bumper on the corner of the tailgate moulding, and it is exposing the brown internals of the bumper. (pic below)

    It has also slightly pushed the bumper back, which was proud about three mil from the body until I pushed it back in.

    Can bumpers be fixed? Is it a problem when it is on a sharp corner? And, as the bumper has moved slightly are there a set of brackets behind it that could have bent/need replacing?

    Thanks.

    thats an easy repair mate dont be tempted with a "smart repair" though soon fade as they dont use 2 pack paint. if you slacken bumper bolts it should spring back to line or just leave it to the bodyshop...we do loads each week much worse than yours..finally two words PARKING SENSORS! get body shop to colour code them at same time....... hth
