Recently, I realise that my rear bumper is sagging right in the middle. It's just below the license plate. No big dramas but just look a bit strange. It's like the boot can't be closed properly. Quite a big gap can be seen from the back of the car.
Does anyone has the same problems? Is it easy to fit? or do i have to bring it back to the dealership to fix it. I'm driving a 07 Falcon BF MKII.

Thanks..

Any pics? Might be helpful to have a couple pics from outside and underside to see where the fault is.

Im thinking a tow bar hit it or something similar but i take ya word that its sagging


Yeah Pictures tell a thousand word or how ever that saying go.. Any damage to the bar like scuff marks or anything cause this could possibly lean it towards a careless C*** at the shopping centre via towbar hit as suggested... If memory serves me that the rear bar sits over a plastic like reo? Correct me if i am wrong. maybe it could be as simple has a broken clip or somesort not keeping the rear bar aligned properly.

I've attached a few pics below. Not sure if it's clear enough. But you should be able to see that gap that I'm talking about..Quite obvious.

Thanks..
