    Pull yours about and tell me how it feels!!!!!

    I've got a wee problem with my front bumber - it keeps popping off the mounting clip at the top of the bumper,in the near side wing just behind the headlight.

    The whole bumper on this side seems to have a lot of play even when clipped in and all the bolts/clips are done tight. Inside the front wheel arch in only seems to be fastened to the arch liner which is quite loose inside the wheelarch and I can see no missing clips that are causing the waggle.

    Could the lovely members of AS, please give theirs a waggle and see if theirs is stiff or wobbly. I'm particularly interested in the inner wing/arch liner join as this seems to be the root of the problem.

    Let me know before I resort to self-cr4pping screws/ drill remedy.

    Ta in advance

    I pulled at mine and yanked it as hard as i could, i soon got tired tho, (no stamina you see), i then got my girlfriend to have a go and she was at it for a good few minutes and it was still as stiff when she had finished as it was when i started...quite chuffed with mine...
