What sort of damage is it? What solution are you looking for? I recently did the same thing to my 95.
I'm about to go out today and pull the bumper support back out to it's original shape. The bumper cover you can pick up for anywhere from $75-125 online. Fill me in and I'll tell you what I did and what worked and what didnt. If you already solved your problem, share some solutions?

SOURCE: i need to change the front bumper and the driver

It would help if you join a VW forum that has Polo group. You'll have a higher chance for info regarding the vehicle.
The control arm is pretty much straight forward, I'd advice you to mark the balljoint (bottom 3 bolts carrier) by using a center punch before you loosen this bolts. This will help you put it back the same exact position and lessen the probability of messing the alignment in a big way.

I'd also suggest to replace the control arm rubber bushings if the mileage is quite high.

SOURCE: I just crashed my toyota

Sorry to hear that. the problem with repairing the car is the avalability of the body panels plus when you do get them they need painting, your best bet would be to try a local parts yard and get the panels used and hopefully not to rusty.

Jaguar x type 2004 front bumper


Front bumper removal is quite easy. To start with there is 4 10mm bolts one by each headlamp ( with the bonnet open) remov them. There is 3 T30 screws that hold the under tray to the subframe and there is also a small corner trim that is on the bumper side of the front wheel arch here is 3 T30 screws holding them on on each side. Finally remove the front wheel arch lining so you can get acsess to the inside of the bumper. You will then see a 10mm bolt towards the top of the bumper that is reversed to you. Remove then the bumper should then just pull away.

Is it worth my deductible


It maybe if you plan on keeping the truck,there is obvious mechanical damage to the front end weather it's minor to major I can't tell you,it may be a bent tie rod or bent wheel or the frame may be bent,either way driving the truck in this condition will damage the brakes(not the one already damaged)steering and prematurely wear your tires at the very least and could cause major damage to the rear axle,you need to get some estimates and compare them to the deductible,because it may cost just a couple of hundred to repair the mechanical problems or it could cost a couple thousand just to do the mechanical,add at least a thousand more for the body damage.Your truck books at about $3800 to $4500 with all options,but factor in the economy and It's possible the insurance may call it a total loss also,Hope this info helps.

Front bumper of 94 cad eldorado slipping on driver side - need to


There are 4 points of attachment for the front bumper. The nose has two long bolts that go through each of the 2 horizontal shock absorbers and screw into clips attached to the bumper reinforcement. You can access each bolt head with a long socket extension inserted in front of the fog lights.

The remaining two points of attachment are on the side of each of the front fenders, they are plastic guides that meet up with groves on the inside of the bumber sides, as you slide the bumper onto the reinforcement bumper, you line up the bumper groves with these plastic fender-mounted guides and you will reach a point where the bumper snaps in place.

I suspect the driver side bumper sliped out of the inner grove (best caes scenario), or the bumper goves cracked or the plastic fender-mounted guide cracked.

Get under the car to take a look, alternatively undo the 2 front nose bolts and remove the bumper, actually not a big job, and you will then be able to assess the problem.

Hope this helps.

Front Bumper


Chances are the shop that initially replaced your bumper didn't do it right and the shoddy install left it sitting lower than it should have. Because of this, you were able to snag the bumper on the parking block. The reason you have to replace it is most likely the mounting bolt holes were torn out or otherwise damaged when the bumper was caught, and there is no longer a mounting surface to use with new mount bolts to put the bumper back on.
