Question about 2012 Mazda 6 i Sport Sedan 2.5L 4-cyl. 6-speed Manual

Open Question

Edmonston Why would bumper get an egg shape hole in right lower bumper? Dealer claims from the extreme cold this year. Bumper was plastic welded and repaired by an expert collision specialist. First time it was taken out on the highway customer claims it popped in the same place. Is it possible for a plastic weld to explode? Repair specialist claims that scratches and damage indicate customer hit something and that damage was higher up on the bumper in same area. How do we determine who is correct?

How do you replace a bumper bar ....do you need a whole new skirt


Bumper bar? Skirt?
There is a bumper reinforment behind the bumper cover.
Front or rear???
Either way there are some plastic retainers on top. You may need to remove a grill which would have some sort of retainer. The retainers usually have a center section that prys up some and the retainer will then pull out.
There should also be some retainers on the undersides of the bumper covers.
There is just about always a bolt going up through the bumper cover into the rear quater panel or front fender right in the wheel well edge. Sometimes there is a guide that the cover slide onto as well. You may need to remove the tail lights. There will be nuts on the inside behind the trim panels or the headlights. they usually have some clearly seen bolts holding them in (about 4 give or take)
Unplug any lights and they can usually be left in the bumper cover.
Then off comes the cover.
From there you may find a styrofoam pad. Don't lose that as it helps the cover keep its shape in the heat. And either the reinforment will be bolted or welded to the frame rails.

Front bumper cover is broken, no lights along bottom.


Under the bumper cover is a fiberglass bumper. It could be broken or your bumper mounts could be bent on that side. It is best to remove the screws (on the side of the wheel well) and 10mm bolts holding the bumper cover, and locate the two frontal bolts in each bracket. There are also some plastic push pin nuts in various spots too. Don't try to get the push pins under the headlights, they will come with when the bumper is removed.

there are two ten mm bolts that hold up the two corners of the bumper followed by a dozen or so push pin type plastic clips remove the two tens and pull the centers out of all the plastic clips and remove the lower halves, the bumper then has a plastic bracket on each side that if pulled straight back will slide right off, as for the sheet metal reapir you can either buy a cheap bodymans slide hammer and drill and pull where it needs or if there is damage to the bumper rebar ( metal bar under cover) you can get a ratcheting "come along" and set the ebrake and chain the other end to a tree, and pull it that way .sounds like you may even be able to use a big sledge hammer and knock the trunck back out also -jeff
