    A definitive answer please?

    Can someone tell me whether the part of the front bumper pictured below can be replaced at all?



    The ones on the misses' cars are non existent and weve heard that you can order new ones from vauxhall. Is this true or do you need a complete new bumper?

    Well i don't know if anything is avaiable from vauxhall to fix it but as you can see mine was the same but now has a washer bonded to either side of the plastic.

    It's been like that for 6 years now with no problems

    Unfortunately the mounts are gone completely so would need to replace to them first.
