View Full Version : Droopy front corner

07-14-2008, 05:08 PM
The front passenger side corner of my RS4 bumper is a little droopy (right where my lic plate is in my avater pic), right around the headlight area. Lines up fine at the pass. side wheel arch and headlight on driver's side. It doesn't move very easily, but I can see it, plus it's very close to putting some pressure on a FMIC connection. It doesn't drop any lower if I put pressure on it, but I can definitely lift it about a 1/2 inch.

I see you guys take your front ends off for so much work... I don't even know where to look... I have a cpl reputable body shops I can hit up, but I'd rather learn how to do this if possible...

Thanks guys,

Come on, nothin? nobody? I know there are enough guys here who can at least tell me where to look.. I've never done body work before, so the appropriate connections aren't jumping out at me.. do you think this is a experienced bodyshop kind of fix? Not going to be offended, I'm no body guy, so if a pro should do it, I'll go that route...

Any hints at all? :)

wish i had an rs4 bumper to complain about

Hehehe, hey, I'm not complaining! Just want to tighten it up :) I saw another last week end and all the lines were tight as hell, mine are off a little over there.. I hope I can tweak it, but maybe it's a shop job.

maybe a picture would help?

did you have to modify your fenders to make the RS4 fit?

Is it bolted or riveted on? Are any bolts/rivets missing or loose?
I would guess that being after market it's bolted unless the shop that installed it used the same factory rivets as a dealership.
