    prodrive rear splitter

    hi all, to cut a long story short....i had a prodrive'd astra. when i got the rear splitter fitted, the guy used double sided tape rather than a bonding gel and now theres a gap where the splitters meant to meet the bumper. is the splitter meant to touch the bumper by just using the screws or are they suppose to be glued on aswell??

    thanks

    If it's been fitted correctly, the passenger side should be bonded on and the driver's side should use double sided tape. Both side have two screw rivets in the wheel arches

    They should be plastic rivets, but with a plastic screw that goes in the centre.

    like these



    Did you have the proper fixing pack/instructions?
