Has anyone got a photo / measurement or both of what that rear bumper retainer looks like?

Mine went missing , I plan to make one. I wont be paying $55.00 for one from the wreckers in Qld.

I have a 2mm thick aluminium plate.

Thanks,
Bondy

Mad2,

Thanks for your reply.

The item, could be named differently but though it was a bumper retainer.

On the Ford AU2 Sedan it's a piece of metal that sits under the rear bumper bar and goes from the bumper bar to the underside of the wheel well. From what I gather it is or was held in position with 4 rivets. 2 at the bumper bar and the other 2 rivets would have been at the wheel well.

It's positioned somewhere between the middle and towards the tail pipe, but underneath the bumper bar.

Cheers

yep sounds similar to what's on her BF sedan. just look at 'where' it was mounted [holes in bumper/wheel well] & go from there..........

otherwise i'm hoping to go back to wreckers & can checkout the piece then if needed.

G'day Mad2,

Here's a photo of mounting position.

You'll have to go to the link to see pic.

with the first two pics, i think it was 'about' 155mm between the rivets. i couldn't get the camera where i wanted it to show length clearly.


Goood luck with it :mrgreen:
