galaxy front bumper
« on: December 29, 2013, 11:59:23 PM »
Sorry everyone but I have another question about my Galaxy MK 2.
A few weeks ago, I stupidly ripped the front bumper off by reversing and turning and not seeing a very thick concrete post. I've obtained a new side wing, plastic wheel arch liner and plastic triangular bracket but have not yet found a bumper. The plastic clips on the end and at the back of the bumper (where they clip into the plastic triangular piece) have all been snapped.
My question is "do I need a complete replacement bumper or can replacement clips be attached"? Sorry if this seems a silly question but obviously need & want it repaired. Thank you.

I can't follow what's broken tbh mate? The triangular piece your referring to, is that the plastic that links up the arch liner and bumper? If so I though the clips were integrated into that bit?

Here's a picture (not the best for this but you can enlarge it and zoom in).  This shows the bracket on the car with the bits that clip into the bumper.

1864-0

And here's a picture showing the sockets on the bumper side (ignore the location of the external temperature sensor and bracket - it's a shot I took when I was trying to find out where it went after a radiator replacement at a garage, when they just left it dangling - it should be mounted on the car - pictures elsewhere)

1866-1

It will look different to yours lemoncharlie as I removed it in a more conventional fashion! As you can see, and Mirez, stated the "peg" section stays on the bracket and the "socket" is moulded into the bumper.

Thanks!! To be honest I was so gutted and embarrased at the time I just pushed it up off the ground and taped it all up, lol. I shall have a look tomorrow, you may have just saved me the trouble (& expense) of replacing the bumper!!
