These rear bumpers ! Am I being robbed or they only hold with some glue ?

Mine was about to fall down when I checked the car this morning BACK from a 70 MPH trip on the crowded higway (It was hanging on the right side, only waiting to be pickup). Can't believe I'd be sitting in jail by now for murder.

Can someone tell me if this is a comon and dangerous problem, or just mine.

Thanks.

They're a PITA. Some have found good luck with glue, a screw, etc.

Or, you can get a new bumper strip, new plastic backing part, and a rubber hammer.

You mean it could have been a worst nightmare for people I don t even know.

I have already dismantled and power cleaned every thing. I will paint the underneath later on today along with inside of (what seems to be) aluminium bumper (chrome is only skin deep).

I'll put back everything back and SCREW the bumper (somewhere under the rubber strip) so that it doesn t show.

Beauty has no price. Life does !
