Default front bumper alignment???

My front bumper appears to be slightly "in" and closer to my nearside headlight,it looks like if i could tilt the top part forward this would increase the gap and bring it forward?is this possible? i thought it might be the bonnet being closed tighter on that side however if i adjusted the bonnet the gap may be bigger but not more forward,hope this makes sense,and any pointers would be good.Thx in advance, Mel

You have the 2 Torx bolts(55) that you access from under the bumper.. This gives you backward and forward movement..

There is also 2 brackets behind the wheel arch liners(one either side) that can be adjusted for the height of the bumper in relation to bonnet/wheel arch line..IIRC they are 10mm headed bolts that hold the bracket.

HTH..

I was looking in to bumper removal at weekend and reading this, which may be of use to you:

(Thankfully I've managed to sort my problem with side marker lights without having to remove the bumper... turned out to be the cheapo LEDs I got from eBay acting weird, not the loom shorting somewhere which is what I thought was wrong)
