    Astra Mk4 bumper problem!

    Hiya, can anyone tell me please how to adjust the rear bumper on my 54 astra? After I bought the car I noticed the boot lid sits on the rear bumper top - there's no gap.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Club.

    Are you sure there a gap on all astra's?

    dont think there is on mine.

    looked at the screw's on the top of the bumper, are they in tight enough?

    Is your boot lid bent in the middle??

    Not much I can think of tbh, apart from what Bludshot and I have mentioned

    maybe its been damged before so the alignment isnt quite right? but tbh there isnt much of a gap between the bumper and boot anyway m8

    Thanx for the feedback folks; have suspicion that car was lightly rear ended before we got it, cant see any obvious bend in boot lid, but lid comes down onto top of bumper and scraped paint from tailgate..
    Useful comments;
    Cheers!

    itl probably be really easy to pull it straight m8 my bro bought a rear eneded astra and was pushed in quite far and he pushed it out with his feet by getting in the boot with the rear seats down so probably worth having a play yourself m8
