Question about an Escort Bumper

A few weeks ago someone hit the back of my 1995 Escort. It is a 2 DR
Hatchback. No one got hurt. We got another taillight. But finding
another rear bumper has been harder.
Are there any other models that would fit? My dad found one off a
1991 model. We had a similar accident back in 2001. That time we found
another bumper more easily. The car still works fine. You can hear a
rattling when at a red light. It comes from the side that got hit.

Sincerely,
Darren Thornton

You can try www.car-part.com, I bet you will find one listed somewhere
in the continental U.S. or Canada.

Re: Question about an Escort Bumper

I can get all I want for $43 at my local U-pull-it junkyard. If I go
there once a month for about 3 months I can usually even get one the
right color. I gotten hot several times in the past 2 years.

I have a 1995 Escort LX 2 Door hatchback. I think you need a bumper
only from a LX 2 Dr HB from 1993-1996. Could be 1994-1996, but I've
had no trouble even when limiting myself to 1995 or 1996's. There are
really that many out there.

http://www.car-part.com is where you go if you don't mind paying too
much.

Re: Question about an Escort Bumper

I wish I had a decent u-pull it in my area. Towns by me made it harder
and harder to do business for them. Not a percieved as a "clean"
business by many. Some people just don't appreciate the virtues of
junk vehicles.

"I wish I had a decent u-pull it in my area"

Then drive to an area which has a decent U-pull-it place. Frankly, I'd
drive to a neighboring state even if I was going to get enough stuff at
one.

Re: Question about an Escort Bumper

If I had one in my area I wouldn't have to drive to another state...
not to mention that if the feeling you get after driving if they don't
have the parts/cars you're looking for
