Is it a write off.. / Mot failure..

the panel immediately behind the bumper.. the horizontal bar in front of the radiator..

this has a big dent in it.. its bent back slightly almost to touching the radiator. Is this a write off?

can this be replaced,

or is it a welded part of the chassis

its below where the bonnet catches.. its the horizontal bit that the bumper sits on.

the top of the bumper attatches to it by two bolts

It's welded in unfortunately. It's not an MOT failure if it's bent but is if it's split.

When I brought my bravo it had this same damage and was missing the bumper and lights and the bonet was also damaged and it was a write off.

However the panel is replaceable this is the one I think you need: Here

I think you just need to drill out the spot welds holding it in and then spot weld the new one into place.
