Re: Help

Don't know what to tell you, I would start buy unbolting your front bumper, you probably cracked the fiberglass Once you find the bolts that are still holding it on be careful as to not let it crack anymore. But some fiberglass bondo resein will do the trick or maybe some jb weld.

Re: Help

it should be held from the back corner, next to light, 4 in front. depending on if it was set in there to make sure if didn't fall the sides are just the clip piece that helps hold it.. the wobble could mean that is loose or the bracket could of grinded into the fiberglass slightly allow wiggle room..mine has done that before..easy fix...just have to replace bracket, or you might just get lucky and be able to move the bracket around till it is in a snug place and then tigthen the bolt back into it. let me kno if i am in the ballpark

Re: Help

ya that is just depending on if the clip is the part that is causing it to be loose...you could of also made one of the holes bigger, so replace with larger screw..worse come to it with that part is just take some bondo and then redrill a hole..

It is good to take the bumper if you have never done it as well with fiberglass ones so you know yourself how strudy it is, where the vunlerable parts spots are. like empty areas where it can sag down..or if hit will be cracked under to much pressure. They are now made to handle i think up to 10 lbs of force without breaking into tiny pieces..not sure..mine can handle 5lbs. of force..

But if it is not the clip then look and make sure that all your screws are snug, the bumper itself has not warped or cracked, but don't worry to much those are easy fixes..
