Alright I looked at how the bumper is put on in some manuals, but I still dont understand it, so I'm asking you guys. Heres the video of it. It pops up and down if i push on it and leaves a big gap. When I push it up it stays but is EASILY moved down, unlike the other side of my car. Any ideas on how this works or what is wrong? How can I fix this?[wrench]
Thanks

you need to take off your bumper. Take off the lower grills and look inside. There is a bracket that the bumper connects to where it seems your bumper is falling off. Let me see if I can find a picture.

Thanks to Starting for this picture....

Take a look at the DIY section to see how to remove your bumper.....

Look at the right side of the pic and you see the bracket. Basically your bumper popped out of it. You should be able to pop it back in by getting the bottom part to hook first then pushing the top of the bumper to hook in......

Try pulling the bumper up and into the bracket and smacking it real hard with your hand to pop it in place. If that doesn't force it to stay in there, the clips on the plastic bracket are probably bent to the point where it disconnects as you stated. If so, you should buy a new bracket from Audi, they are only like 10 bucks.

got it guys. thanks so much!


edit: if anyone reads this in the future, i got it back in by click it up like i had done, but then smacking about halfway down the panel and it popped the bottom tab in. i could not do it by attatching the bottom tab first. push up, hit in.
