On the Early Falcons (EA to ED) the front bumpers are held on the side of the front guard with triangler clips with a handle. you put them in the hole and turn and it locks into place....

can these be brought from places like supercheap, repco, autobarn etc etc or are these ford only items one fell off on me today (heavy rainy windy wheather)

    not as easy as that i work at the only wreckers in dubbo and we do mostly 4wd's commodores and falcons from like AU.... i assume that some one would sell them aftermarket for like panel beating situations

    ok found one at work on the ground near the falcons... today i am going to see if ford still sell them.. i couldn't see why not as too many panel beaters would be chasing them for the minor crashes

    ford do sell them

    the ones that go into the guard are EA 17N800 A then there is the clip on the bar that that one slides into. best bet is to go get a new one as after 15 years they tend to stretch and give.
