hey guys

after a trolley stand appeared behind while i was reversing i now have a sagging rear bumper with it sagging about an inch on the left side of the car.
is there anything i can do to fix it myself or do i have to visit a panel beater, and if so what am i up for?

any advice would be appreciated

Kezz

There are some plastic clips around the sides of the bumper, these hold the bumper to the body. Check if one has popped out or broken.

you'll have to take the whole rear bar off to have a look. it's not that hard. two big bolts on both sides in the boot, and then it's just a few screws in the wheel arches.

there may also be a pair of small bolts under the spare wheel tub, you have probably bent the bumper iron, if you cant budge it.

If thats the prob, you can just bend it back into shape and off you go
(s**t you hit the trolley stand hard - mines hanging down too, but after another car run up my a***)
