    hi all,
    2002 e46 330d se
    the point where the rear bumper meets the wheel arch it seems to have come unclipped/unhooked and the pointed corner bit is off so it sticks out loose. ive had a play about an tried to push it back on it has a sort of clip. i cant seem to do it.
    does anyone know what am talking about?
    does anyone know how to clip it back in?
    i bumped the rear bumper so i think it has popped the bumper off at each wheel arch.
    sorry bout my rubbish long explanation
    cheers.

    I know the clips your talking about. give them a press with plyers to tighten the side that clips on to the bumper. if you have hit the bumper out of line ther might be a bit more to it.

    Mines done the same! My local Indy told me the bumper on the sides is sort of like on rails through the clips!

    He told me its a undo bumper bolts,slide bumper back realign it in clips,pushing it back forwards as you go!Then refit bolts!

    Quoted me a hours labour??

    Hope this is of use!

    When my 3 broken ribs have healed il do mine! lol
