    Tow Bar problem



    Hi, I have just bought a 2005 A3 1.9 TDI. It came with a tow bar fitted and I got it removed and noticed a square chunk had been cut out of the bumper. Would this be able to be fixed without replacing the bottom lower bumper? If I need to replace it what part do I need?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, but would need to plastic weld it 1st to patch the cutout up, then fill/sand & then paint, in the end its a cheapish part about 50-60 iirc, then get painted as it comes primed iirc from my ones I bought.

    I actually wanted a towbar fitment, so bought sport lower valance that has the removable flap invisible when fitted so I could use removable towbar, then found out there was a sline valance so swapped it for that, then got my S3 bumper & as the S3 valance isnt available in towbar fitments, I made a removable flap in the valance, so I have S3 rear with removable flap for removable towbar, when not in use cant even see the removable flap, job done.

    What is your colour code?

    I have a lower spoiler I will sell you from my car in good condition, I'm removing it to fit one with a removable section for a detachable towbar.
