    astra mk4 valance bent help :(

    Ok seems my front valance is bent to hell, has also bent the legs at either side too apparently altho it is in garage for repairs to rear atm.

    How easy is it to replace the front valance, they have told me the legs shud bend back,

    is valance bolted on or welded on, and could a rear end bump to the car cause this damage to the front valance.

    cheers

    bumper off

    new intercooler on


    bumper back on with some minor triming of the fog lamp housing and behind the grill


    and again



    I have noticed a bit of difference and that was on a very HOT day

    but i need to get it on the rollers to see what its throwing out now

    about £70 if memory serves correct from that panel place... cant remember the name (do all the cheap replacements though)

    That being bent is the result of a front impact..
