    Grrrrr...car park damage

    My car was hit whilst in the car park today and the person that did it drove off and the person that spotted it didn't get the model of car or reg

    It sounds like the car reversed square on into my front end and upon inspection there appears to be no damage - bumper isn't cracked and the bonnet, grille and lights are fine.

    However, the impact on the bumper has made the bumper now stick out on each front wing and no longer sits flush with the bodywork

    Any idea's what clips it may have broken or how i can get it sitting right again? is it just the case of popping the bumper and refxing it? any advice would be great.

    Cheers

    the only way to find out is drop the bumper off and take a look

    Yeah thats what i'm thinking, another job for the weekend then!

    Just found this post on bumper removal, http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.p...bumper+removal

    And it does not look like there is likely much to be damaged, maybe just those tabs.....

    The plastic is only the cover, the actual bumper is the steal guarder behind and that could be bent.
    Yes is has happened without braking the plastic cover.
    I bet it was a woman (no offence to the local ladies), woman have be driving erratically lately with all the Christmas arrangements.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.
