Title: Identifying part
Post by: gazzap on June 11, 2022, 15:51:23
Hi all,
Firstly gotta say, these forums helped me decide on buying my first i30, (2017 SR Premium) so thank you for all your contributions.

So as i said, just bought the car a week ago (second hand obviously) and i'm trying to identify a part so i can fix an issue with the bumper.
If you check the images you'll see the previous owner has scraped the underside and popping a part under the bumper. It looks like i need a clip or something but if you have a look at the first pic, it wouldn't clip into the 2 clips that are already there.
Anyone got any ideas as to what part i'd need and how to clip it back in place?

Thanks in advance.

I'm interstate at the moment so I can't check my model at home but I wouldn't sweat trying to replicate the original fit.
Just push it back into the correct alignment, drill through both layers of plastic and fix it with nut, bolt and washers.

Take the lower inspection/wind guard off, I'd say it's popped the plug behind it and would be a simple fix.

Thanks for the reply guys,
I ended up popping the clips off the wind/splash guard and yes, i can see where a clip and a bolt should go (oh i found out the parts are known as a "u" clip and associated bolt and are fairly universal). I've ordered the parts and see how i go fixing.
