Help With Fiesta 2013 Rear Bumper Bracket

Recommended Posts

So I was unlucky to reverse into the drive of a friend and did not notice a low post and as I pulled forward it latched into the near side of the rear bumper and noticed the bumper fell off and broke the bracket and plastic fittings.

Now trying to fit the bracket but not really sure how? How to remove and re-install the three metal fittings that secure the bracket to the car body? See below pictures

Anyone done something similar before?

Those are rivets and will need drilling out and replacing with new ones.

Go to your Ford parts counter and ask for all the rivets, screws and clips needed for fitting of one bracket.

Thanks, did not expect these to be rivets, ordered a set of three and hope they will fit on a normal rivet gun.

There should be no problem on a rivet gun.

Went to my local stealers today (yesterday now ;)) to get some rivets for my new project.

Bought a replacement facelift bumper for my MK2 Focus but the seller omitted to tell me that the bumper brackets would need replacing as they just ripped the side mounting bolts out rather than undo them properly.

This has resulted in me having to source new brackets and the rivets for them.

I thought of going to a local DIY store and getting some rivets but decided that as they are for plastic that they are likey to have a much lower snap off pressure than ones designed for metal, and rather than bust new brackets taking the risk I concluded that original ones are a better bet.
