    hi guys just fitted my £25 bargain rear diffuser which has made such a difference in look - i love it. only problem is the bumper is not fitting flush underneath of both rear lights? i can push it in but eventually it will pop out a little so it basically about 1cm out from the tail lights? think that makes sense.

    has anyone got any advise of how to get this bumper to sit flush again? i have checked Google but cant seem to find anything?

    am i right in saying that was your original bumper? if so take it off and refit it. doesnt sound like you have lined up the clips properly...

    yes it is the original, i have taken it off twice and re-fitted but it just wont go in correctly? i think its something to do with them white lugs that go in on either side of the bumper.

    you are re-fitting while the tail lights are out right? not trying to fit with the tail lights fitted to the car?

    make sure it sits right before trying to screw anything in... and check that there is nothing in the way, even a small screw could make this happen. see if it clips in on the rear arch??

    I have a SB and i know on mine its fiddly but give it patience and time so fit on.
