    Fitting coupe bumper to astra hatch

    I picked up a nice coupe bumper with irmscher splitter last week, so before i go tearing the lower grill out and playing with it abit before painting, are there any differences that i need to know of ? different clips etc etc ? or will it just slide straight on nice and neat, also are the fog lamp connectors the same on the coupe as the hatch ? sorry for all the ques but i'm not gonna keep pulling my bumper off every 5 mins to check

    straight on easy as that.

    Only thing is, just like all other astra bumpers - it will keep popping off at the sides.

    As said above its a straight swap - plug and play the olny bits I suggest you get are new PDR - plastic drive rivets. there are two on top of the bumper just under the bonnet/grill bit, and three under the bumper that attach to the sub-frame. The only cost pennies and it's well worth getting new ones.

    aAs for the popping off syndrome, mine did this and it's now cured - wanna know how?? click me

    Enjoy your new bumper
