    Backing out from a pub car park i'd managed to hook the lower front valence over a kerb, backing out rfesulted in a bit of a mess, are those bits on the floor ours.... YES! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif I've put most of it back but there are several clips and hooks now misssing.
    there's a block in front of each fr wheel that seems to hold the side of the valence on, both missing the rear most clip hole.

    Does anyone know if the whole valence (grey plastic) just clips on and off or isf there are hidden screws/bolts holding it from behind?
    Chas, feeling sorry for his car!

    Chas,
    I was cringing when I read the post. Sorry for your misfortune.

    Take a look at the image below, which was taken from the Bentley repair manual.

    is that image from "inside" the car? the bolt labelled 2 isn't accessable from either side :-( had the wheel arch liner off,
    I bought a new guide block and the bumper no longer flaps but it don't look right :-(

    cheers for the image
    Chas

    Yep, those are inside the bumper.

    The bumper is actually pretty easy to take off but you'll need a second set of hands to help you so you don't scratch the bumper when taking it off.
