    Took bumper off today

    So I managed to spring a leak at the front end (put a screw in a hose!) which was only the windscreen fluid (thankfully!). So took off the bumper (bugger of a job) and sorted that out. But I found that the crash bar seems to be distorted. Can anyone advise if this is normal, or that it has had a prang?

    Also I noticed this part. They are ment to be seperated (drivers side wheel well), but is there something ment to be here?

    Can't see any pictures but the bar does have a pinch on both sides by design. You'll notice they're exactly symmetrical, very hard to do in a crash

    Dam dropbox.... its ment to be decent! lol!

    Anyway, yeah, they are pretty symmetrical so I did think it was by design, but was suprised as it seems to remove some structural regidity. Thanks for that, as it means I wont go and buy a replacement! :D

    Does anyone know the part number for the hose that runs through the front bumper connecting the two pop-out light washers? Its a pretty beefy pipe (unexpectedly so!). Mine happens to have about 4 holes in it now (was installing the cupra splitter, which I have done a ****e job - will be fixed!!!)
