I just messed up my front bumper....I drove into my local mall yesterday and I parked my car as always but when i got out of the mall as I was pulling away from my parking space somehow my front bumper got stuck with that sement thing they have on parking spaces and it ripped off my front bumper. I managed to clip it back into place but now everytime i get on the freeway it comes off on the sides...do you guys think that the clips got bent a bit and they are not holding as tight as usual or that perhaps im missing something a clip or a screw somewhere?

well...i notice that there are 2 clips on the right and 2 on the left...all four are there and there are no broken but im not sure if they are grabbing the bumper as strong as they should. Are there any more clips on the center part of the bumper near the headlights????

mine did the same thing. i had to take it all the way off, then put it back on(i was doing the TB), i properly clipped it and it held fine after that.

make sure you clip the top and bottom clips on the side

Yup...gotta take the whole bumper off..
to re-align it to the side clips, and just push it in..

i had a similar problem with the sides going off, there is a clip in the middle of the sides, line up the top of the side so it slips in and then push hard in the middle of the side

this seems like a perfect excuse for the rs4 replica bumper or an S4 bumper [:D]

This are the clips that keep falling off on both sides. Are there anymore clips??? I think thats what you guys are saying but im not sure. Cause what i thought was that maybe since the bumper was ripped off that maybe the clips opened up a bit and they are not holding as tight as they should....you guys think that could be the problem? and have any of you guys ever purchased this? Thanks for the help guys



BTW---not enough funds for the s4 bumper ;(

they have given you all you need to know... take off your bumper, and put it back on correctly...

instructions to take off the bumper can be found here:

It happend to me too. I just put screws from the bumper going to the fender. You can't notice them at all and it holds it perfectly.

search for all that stuff in the archives... is been gone into depth multiple times


basically all youll need is the bumper (with support) grills, foglights, and platecover...
