    Question Coupe bumper!!

    Hi all bought a coupe bumper off ebay not very happy with it in the description it said a few marks its covered in them,not that much of a problem as iam going to paint it to match my colour of car,whats concerning me is that there dose'nt seem to be any hinges at the two corners of the bumper which screw into the parts next to the wing,is this rite? how will it hold on to the car,thinking about sending it back!!

    a common problem, they snap. without them it wont hold on. (id show you if i had a pic of my car at the mo, got a coupe bumper on it without the two screws into the wing)

    a bodyshop mite be able to attach some new ones though

    Just go to vauxhall, they should have the correct clips, should'nt be much either.

    It seems like the two plastic hinges have snapped off at both ends,so do u think vauxhall will sell them what would i use to bond them on,so that it would hold on at ether side!!??

    Glad you understand what going on here Andy - wtih all this talk of missing hinges and clips on a coupe bumper, I'm confused.

    Chris - if it the bits that Andy's described above, then they all split. Mine have and the bumper stays on OK

    the ones on my bumper (in the bodyshop) are ok but the ones on the bumper i have on it at the moment kinda look like this lllUlll instead of lllOlll so the screw is useless and my bumper flaps about

    The bumper is realy held on buy the clips on the side and the 5 pistic rivets on the front.

    The 4 screws on the ends just support it - the bottom two only fasten to the arch liners!!
