    S3 rear bumper insert.

    Hi all.
    Just picked my car up from audi after having the roof rails repaired.
    But for some reason the rear bumper inserts poking out a bit at the top now?.
    Any idea if it just pops back in?
    As i dont fancy taking more time off work for them to do it for me.

    cheers

    Just take a look at the clips on the one that you are gonna fit. take a look up behind the rear bumper. between haveing a look up and comparing with the replacement it should be pretty clear how to remove it. I have my replacement sitting in the shed after someone put a towing eye through mine. w**ker.

    Callum, pretty sure it just needs a firm "thump" to get it back in, being an Audi it will be a snug fit hence needing a firm shock thump rather than just a push.

    Phoned the bodyshop today, to tell them about the broken clips and see if they would do anything.
    "apparently" the clips were broken when it went in, and they have photo's to prove it.

    But to see the clips/ to take photos of them you have to remove the insert???

    Most unhelpful.

    Dont suppose anyone has an unwanted rear bumper panel lying around?
