Hi everyone, after a year being mostly off the road due to my health and problems with the car I finally got it sorted and I'm driving again. The repair list so far..... both front springs, both rear dampers, both front drop links and one track rod end. This lot set me back £800.

The car is driving fine now but my problems aren't over, the front end is making a lot of noise, when I got a look the front bumper is loose and rattling, it looks like the brackets are broken, the ones behind the grille just above the number plate. Is it possible to get this grill out ? the section I need to remove is a one piece plastic grill and number plate unit, I might be able to repair the damage if I can get at it.

I'm guessing the car has run into a high curb or something, it has a couple of scrapes low down.

Thanks guys.

Hello flytebass, the parts have separate items so you should be able to detach or reattach them. I would be surprised if you needed to remove the bumper to do it though :(

Maybe the picture of the parts listing for the Picasso front bumper will help?
