not really much of a modification more of a fix
i havent tried to fix it yet but looking at what to do,
my front bar on the BA XR has dropped on the passenger side and just wandering if its easy to fix, i.e. some screws / bolts loose or broken clip or is it something for a body shop to work on?

you can see the seperation under the lights and it doesnt look pretty


any advice welcomed

Cheers

And judging by this quote and a few of his others last night, I'd say he's on the piss! haha

Does anyone know where the thread is relating to sagging front bumpers on BA XR's? Can't seem to find it and there's 152 pages of posts. Wow. Bought mine new 10 years ago this month and the dealer said "they're all like that". Mine has got progressively worse over the years to the point where the top of the grille has a huge gap between it and the leading edge of the bonnet. Very ugly and I would like to fix it. Thanks if you can help...cheers

While I don't own a B series, the trick alot of guys do (Ford included) is to remove the number plate and put a couple of large screws through the bumper into the Bar Reo. Then refit the number plate. This is a fairly common problem, especially with the XR Bars.

Thanks guys for such a quick response. Think I'll go outside now into the beautiful Queensland sunshine and pull the front plate off to have a look. Sounds easy enough even for me to do...thanks again
