Touran Front Bumper

Post by Royster1984 » Sat May 23, 2015 10:04 am

After a little advice, I ve had a touran front bumper fitted by a local bodyshop. Should it fit perfectly the sides just seem to hang a little I ain't sure if the bodyshop has incorrectly fitted it??

I think there is a bracket on the wing they could of missed but anyway a decent body shop wouldn't give it back like that

I think there's a bracket which the bumper kind of slides into along the side and then you push it in to finally engage. I suspect it's not been installed properly by the bodyshop.

Male & female slots on bumper /wing also 2 small black pin type fittings on wings near the wheel arch.

looking at that it should be a matter of sliding it forward and slide it on correctly
easy diy job if u have some basic torq screw bits
the only worst possible case i can see with it is that i have seen some of these that have lost the brackets that are moulded to the bumper itself but that is worst case but defo take it back and make them put it rite
