I have 2000 sl500 with sport package bought a month ago. reading lynns post "sports package - buyer beware" made me look at my front bumper. noticed gaps at both ends of front bumper cover and fender are wider. kinda like sagging at both ends. looks like the center of bumper cover was pushed up causing both ends to sag down. can this bumper cover be adjusted? haven't ordered repair manual yet, and have searched forum.

Quite often the reason for this is parking front on to a kerb site, so that the bumpers slides in quite nicely, but becomes speared on reversing out. I did this on a C43 where AMG have made the bumper very low indeed, and pulled the whole thing off!

You should be careful of this and try not to let the front override a kerb.

You might be able to re-adjust it - loosen the mounting bolts and push up the ends and retighten bolts.

Has anyone fixed gaps like those described in this thread? Is it as easy as loosening the mounting bolts and re-positioning the cover?
