Hi guys hoping someone can help. Noticed one of my front grills where the fogs are on the A3s isn't sitting right at the top. Anyone know how to clip it back into place properly? Had a little wiggle on it but didn't wanna break anything lol. Photos attached.

Looks like the bumper has had a wee bump.
It’s slightly deformed just about that grill piece. There’s also missing paint.
Might have been a light tap from a tow bar or something.

Idk because the bumper shape looks perfect to my eyes. Also no paint missing it's just dirty lol :wink:

This definitely looks like a scuff. See the wrinkle in the paint. Coincides with where the grill is loose.
You can see the light reflects differently along the edge. Could be just something in the picture though.

Give it a quick wipe and take another pic preferably without your head :-0
Almost swear that’s a scratch/scrape.

Not sure if this helps but looks like another part behind the grill so it could be all out of place and just needs realigned.

Just a quick update, just had the car detailed and the detailer let me know the entire front end of car had a respray so it was probably installed wrong after the bumper was removed to paint. Got an Audi tech to remove the bumper and put it back into place. All good now.
