    Fixed a little annoyance...

    Today I decided I'd finally fix a little problem that has been annoying me for a while... the drivers side of the bumper wouldnt sit flush.

    Before...




    After



    much better, if I do say so myself!

    didnt even have to take the front bumper completely off, but rounded off that screw i told you about andy, so the new one came in handy!!

    and found out that the part that is meant to hold the bumper on had snapped at the back hence not fitting etc etc

    well on the drivers side theres a bracket that on mine had broken, went to vx and got it (part no: 90559500) cost £3.68... undo both screws on drivers side of bumper and just prize it away from the wing, then you can slip the old bracket out and secure the new one in place with a couple of 4mm bolts/screws.

    no worries mate, was a 10 min job, which included a rounded screw... make sure the bracke is not attached to the wing, if it is, you'll have to drill two rivets out!
