    My mates wife manged to catch the drivers side of the rear bumper of their A3 on the outside tap by the driveway last night.

    Got away with just a bit of a scuff but the bumper on that side has been pulled back about 1/2", so does not fit flush with the rest of the bodywork.

    Any idea how to get to the bumper mounting points to either give it a tweak or remove and refit?

    Cheers
