Bumper Change.... or something to that effect

I want to colour code the bumpers on my EA. The front one has a split in the bottom, and the rear one is a bit shabby. Which means ruling out painting them. (I didn't want to paint them anyway.)

Now, my Q is, will other bumpers from EB, ED even, fit onto an EA? And is it as simple as unscrewing a few nuts and screwing on a new one?

And, I have a towbar I didn't want anyway, what's involved in removing that?

Re: Bumper Change.... or something to that effect

As far as i know the tow bar doesn't have to come off to take the rear bumper off, i removed mine *today* (EF) and had no problems.

Re: Bumper Change.... or something to that effect

It does on an EA

Just undo the 2 bolts on the bottom of the tongue to get the towball part off.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Pardon my ignorance, but where would that be?

I don't have a towball, just the rest of the assembly.

Re: Bumper Change.... or something to that effect

if you have no towball, just a towbar, it should be in 2 pieces, the tongue which is bolted to the bar with two BIG bolts from underneath, and the rest of the bar is bolted from inside the boot, and underneath, you will need to remove bumper first to remove towbar fully.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: Bumper Change.... or something to that effect

Does the rear bar on your EA have the metal plate that pop rivets to the under side of the wheel well? Late production EA's got that to stop bumper sagging and not lining up.

: Edit: What I mean is it stops the lower lip sagginf over time. I quite often see EA's where the lower edge doesnt match up on each side of the exhaust.

I don't think so NZ. My EA is a June 88 model.
