    Front bumper loose [SOLVED]

    My front bumper is not attached properly for some reason, leaving a gap underneath the headlight. i dont know if the car has been damage repaired or not.

    Check out the picture.

    Im planning to take off the bumper and see if i can refit it flush, ive never taken off a bumper before, does anyone have any help/ideas about this problem?

    I belive theres a couple of plastic rivets which are in that area, Im guessing they are either missing or broken

    They unclip.

    Try pushing it back on to start with.

    I just had a look underneath and the three bumper fasteners from the bottom end are missing! (must have been lost when the previous owner had it) im guessing when i get some from vauxhall and screw it on properly it will fit ok

    thats a point, i wondered that.
    would be easyier to tell if theres a side on shot of this to confirm it.

    if it is the rubber strips, then you want part number 9199910 for the right hand and 9199909 for the left hand
