Rear bumper on 2013 Punto - any difference between LHD and RHD?

I have a left hand drive Italian registered Punto, but now I'm in Ireland. The car has a big dent in the rear bumper, and I'm wondering if there's any difference between LHD and RHD bumpers. Can I pick up a scrap one here?

Next question is are they hard to fit/remove, and does it realistically take two people? I've seen someone on Youtube making it look easy...

Hi.
Compare part numbers..

Traditionally the inset lights would meed swapping.. but the 2010+ just has reflectors

Fitting?

Not particalarly heavy.. but awkward.. so an assistant..or a support structire.. would be good.

Personally..
I Would check all the fittings come undone on yours (rust:accident damage) before committing to the time and expense of a replacement

I suppose the part no would be somewhere on the underside of the bumper, so I need to take it off first for a look anyway. Or is it somewhere else?

ePER is the fiat parts system.

This forum has an older version.. for comparison.

But I use 'fiatdalys' website.

Good for you too as it will compare left and right parts

I know for a fact that the LHD and RHD for the 2011 EVO are different as I ordered a replacement foglight, and it was for the wrong side...

Haha, apologies. Just returned after a while for a browse.

I ordered a replacement fog light from a European website and it was shaped to be the other side. What I was trying to say is that the wiring may be different due to this.

Agreed.. but the bumper will have 2 sockets for lights.. 1 left..1 right

Just like the front one..
