Alright guys. Smashed my rear bumper in on my 2008 focus. Had a look at local dismantalers but as I thought no joy. Does anyone know where I would get one from or best place quite cheap. Also checked eBay.

Cheers fellas.

Ash.

Seems to be quite a few on Gumtree, not sure if their suitable or not but worth a look.

Do you know the Ford paint colour name for your car? It will tell you on the Ford ETIS site. I presume your looking for a straight swap without having to do any paint work?

when you come to take the old one off if you havent done so already you will find that the inner 10 mm nut under the wheel arch is rusted to hell and even with a good dose of wd40 will only come part of the way loose then sieze and spin the bolt within the plastic holder i just gently prized mine out with a long screw driver and then just knocked the lower holding panel back into shape will just put a washer back on for extra security when you get your new bumper that same place might have been ragged knowing scrappys it is only riveted in place so will be able to take it off put a new bolt in with a locking nut and then put back on bumper youll see what i mean when you come to do the job about half hours work

No probs didnt end up changing the mount the guy i bought it off on ebay said it was missing it wasnt all that had happened was that the 10mm bolt had sheared out of the plastic holder (youll see when you do yours)not a problem with nimble fingers you can get around the back and insert a new bolt with washer on then put a locking nut the other side and just replace bumper as normal literally 10/15 min job

quick question regarding the rear bumper mate,
do you reckon the car could be driven for about a week, with the rear bumper removed and the fog light bulb and reverse bulbs tapped up?

im asking because i have a Zetec S body kit for the mk2.5 and i need to leave it in the body shop to get it sprayed and fitted to the bumpers, and the problem is i need the car for work so i was thinking of removing the rear bumper and leaving it in the body shop along with the rear lip for fitting,

have you got any pictures of the focus without the rear bumper fitted?

no need to go to the bother of removing it just for me mate its fine thanks,

the zetec s is a lip that fits on to the existing bumper, so its only the one, and my trip to work is 18km each way so i would hope to avoide the cops but i agree i may be breaking the law because i wouldnt have a reverse of a fog light for a week.
