Bumper Trouble

04 October 2015 - 10:49 AM

I've had a bit of an altercation with a post. The rear bumper has hairline cracks in the paint. Does anyone know if there is a product available to deal with this problem rather than have the bumper repainted?

Fiesta 7.5 Wonky Door.

I have a 7.5 Ecoboost. Some time ago the drivers door sounded like a bag of nails when shut. No satisfying 'clunk'.


I returned it to the supplying dealer who said it was a bodywork matter and they could not deal with it referring me to a Ford bodyshop in Penkridge Staffs. I complained to Ford HQ they said Penkridge is only 15 miles away and should not be a problem - the problem was that it is at least 20 miles away up the Car Park called theM6.


Anyway having removed the door card and found nothing I took the car to my local non-franchise garage. They removed the door card and the inner panel and discovered that the strengthening strut was not bonded to the outer skin of the door. Duly bonded in and hey presto nice quiet clunk.


It was worth paying to have this work done.
