    Evening All,

    The rear bumper on my motor sticks out about an inch at the top of the bumper either side of the car where it (should) connect to the wheel arch.

    Bought the car off my girlfriends parents and they assured me know one has ever driven in to the back of it.

    Ive given it a bit of a wiggle to see if will click back in but wont.

    Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    Cheers

    Nick

    Mine does the same on the near side.I enquired at my local Indy and they told me the following.

    The bumper has come off a rail type arrangement!! It needs bumper unbolting, then bumper needs sliding back locating,then slid forward then bolted back up.

    Quoted me hour or so labour!!
