squares on front bumper?
« April 16, 2019, 04:18:14 »
What are these?
i slightly pull one one and there seems to be a cable behind.
could these possibly be where you mount the front parking sensors, and the cable is there ready to use?

has anyone pulled this out without breaking?

A picture would help...

I've got one square on my front bumper but that's for the tow hook, being yours is a premium is it headlight washers :undecided:

"has anyone pulled this out without breaking?"


let's hope it's not the Headlight washers and  they're in one piece still.

Are we getting any imagery of these or at least an image off the web with the item concerned marked?

Is it the square/diamond shaped cover directly under the headlamp?

These are headlight washers, they came out when you wash windshield with lights on.
It think only i30 with xenon AFLS lights have it.
You need to remove them when you removing bumper by pulling out for about 10cm and then turn on one side (I don't remember which).

Sounds like you need to square up with the owner's manual...  :snigger:
