New member proud but confused


Recommended Posts

Recently purchased a WRX sti 320r and I love it. It's my first Subaru and a bit of a step up in performance from my old Dicovery 3 which served me well for 9 years.

however the WRX has a zunsport front bumper which my drive does not like and this morning managed to snap the lowest part of the bumper assembly. Can these parts be replaced/removed without causing much stress?

should I also go for a factory front bumper replacement or find a new zunsport part? I have already told the missus we need to move because the drive damaged the car! 

Help and guidance appreciated.

Looks like they are push pin connectors but will have to jack the car up tonight to have a look and either remove what's left or try and clip it for now. What I don't want to do is damage the bumper if I can help it.

Thanks Jay762, most of them are pushpins but there's about 6 screw/washers as well. Sadly when the splitter ground out it snapped the bumper around two of the screws where a pushpin would have popped out. I've managed to put a temporary fix in to hold the splitter in place until I can fix the drive, get a new bumper and splitter and then get it repaired. 

Also worked out that if I revers off the drive it doesn't ground! Doh!
