Question about 2007 Audi A4 Convertible

1 Answer

Front Bumper About six months ago, I had to have my front bumper replaced, thanks to a teenage driver who didn't "know I was backing up" and hit my car. Since then, whenever I park in a spot that may have a raised sidewalk or concrete barrier, my front end will scrape and pull on my bumper. Today, I didn't even realize I had parked over a concrete barrier and upon backing up, my front bumper came apart on both sides. I couldn't get on the interstate because of the flapping of the cheap bumper, so I drove slowly to the repair shop associated with the dealership, and the mounts were broken, so now they expect me to fork out over $1200 for a new bumper. What has caused this problem that I didn't have before the kid hit me and why can't they reuse the same 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.

How to remove front bumper?


I have recently replaced the front bumper on my 2005 Aveo, after hitting a deer. The good thing to know, is directly connected to the bumper, there is NO sensor to worry about tripping the airbags. There are what seems like a million Teflon screws, that must come out to remove, and replace the bumper. The turn signals, and fog lights(if equipped) must come out first. All electrical connections, like the headlights, turn signals, and fog lights, must be disconnected, or you can't access the bolts, and screws near them. It's actually very easy to remove and install the bumper after the electrical connections are dealt with. Do not worry about the plastic clips located under the hood for removal. They are cheap and easy to replace. Here are some pics that might help you.

Hi Everyone, I have a 2009


Bad grounded,u must ceck the signal (12V on the dash,empiric u can do it with a bulb and a wire,ceck every wire terminal under the dash instrument also the terminals from the back breaklight,eliminate the hipotese of a bad grounded instalation).Bad plugs (cleaning spray also helps).Main fuse/relay under the hood.Best guess:ceck the alternator charge rate can be overcharging making the bulbs /fuses/relays get burned.Inspect battery for acid over (overcharge signal).Ceck link alternator/starter/motor to chasis ground.Cheers,hope u deal the problem,let others know.
