Re: EA - ED Bumper Sag

You can still buy the clips on the side of the bumpers, one part screws to the bumper and the other turns and locks to the first one. If the outer skin has come loose from the reinforce, take off the number plate and drill some countersunk holes thru both parts and hold together with countersunk screws. You can also do this behind the bumper insert (grey, red or chrome depending on the model).

Re: EA - ED Bumper Sag

My bumper isn't only sagging, it's warped :(

I just put up with mine. I bought some plastic bits for it a while ago, which are meant to lock the bumper to the frame (with triangle-shaped joints), but the bumper won't let me! Ahh well...
