    Hi all.

    Just inspected my new front bumper... and the "rails" on the corners is what my question is about.

    I appear to be missing one!?

    The passenger side has one... but the drivers side doesnt... is this fixable or have i been ripped off?

    Is this the black bumper trim you are talking about?

    Hi Klone,

    So there is nothing attached to the bumper to slide over the fixing that is affixed to the vehicle?

    Sounds to me like you are explaining number 11 listed in this link? http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...03&hg=51&fg=15

    It's obviously replaceable so you could remove the one from your old bumper possibly? Unless that's faulty?

    Hope this helps

    I'd agree with Rym, IIRC there held on with 8mm plastic nut

    That's it!

    Nice one guys... i checked with BMW and it's only £1ish!

    The bumper isnt a BMW part... so im hoping that they are fixable with a nut and i dont have to fettle it on or anything..
