Re: What is the black bar mounted behind grill?

I have a black bar attached to the back side of the front bumper, directly behind the grill. It is shock mounted with rubber similar to motor mounts. It is 12" long and 3 " in diameter. It is a factory install bar that looks like it is there to absorb vibrations or something. Any ideas?

That might be what caused my airbag problems, but still doesn't explain why it took 2 weeks for one of them to partially deploy when I tried to start the car and why the light only came on a few times.
Oh well, that **** is gone out the car now.

Re: What is the black bar mounted behind grill?
