Impact on Panda 1992 front bumper

My Panda 75 Fire 1992 has suffered of an front bumper impact under right headlight.

Since this impact, the front bumper part has gone backward and the lateral right part is no longer holded.

Using the Fiat ePER drawing, do you have an idea of the spare parts which must be changed ?

Thank you for your answers.
Mike

Re: Impact on Panda 1992 front bumper

if you take the bumper off, you may be able to bend the bumper bracket back into shape. i managed to on mine quite easily. the bumper bracket

i am not able to print screen a picture but here is the name of the bracket from 2014 ePER software:

7549356 BRACKET CENTR.

if you google the number you should find what you are looking for

Re: Impact on Panda 1992 front bumper

Is it easy to take the front bumper off ?

Is it possible to do it alone ?

Thanks
Mike

Relatively easy in theory - as usual it depends how rusted the various bolts are. 2 bolts each on the 2 front brackets plus one each side. You'll need the arch liners off for access to the side ones, front ones are "accessible" from underneath. Obviously they are all awkward to get to and probably seized but definitely just a one person job. Main problem is that if the bolts are seized they are a square headed design that fits into a slot on the inside of the bumper so if they are seized they tend to twist the mounting slots apart instead of uncrewing. Once you get it off though a replacement bumper mount is cheap and easily available, and you'll be able to see if there's any more damage to the front end.

Ok, thank you.

I have ordered 2 brackets.


Is it inevitable to remove the both wheels ?

Yes, but not necessarily at the same time, for removal sounds like you'll only need the left side off as from what you are saying the right has conveniently detached itself.
