    Default My bumper loose on the front corner

    My bumper is loose on the front corner, I removed it yesterday and re fitted it but it's still the same. It clicked in twice into the bracket, but still sits the same as in the pictures. Any idea why it does this? I was thinking of pulling the wing out a little so it sits more flush, not that I want to do that.

    Have you tried banging it in with the palm of your hand mate. Mine takes a good dull tap to get it to click in. Also try shifting the whole bumper to the drivers side, it might just be off by a mm or 3

    I had a little mess about with it yesterday, it won't tap in any more. It clicked into the bracket twice and stopped at that. I will give it another go on the weekend when I am off work. Cheers

    You'll probably find that the rail guide (what grips the bumper at that point) has lost it's grip. I had the same problem a while back and the only solution was to get a new rail guide (part number 13140760 for that corner).

    It's not a big deal to fit it, although you have to drill out the pop rivets of the old one and then fit new pop rivets on the new one.

    Once I'd done that - no more sticky out bumper corner.

    I like the sound of that plan. Cheers for that
