I understand that some places use hot pressurized air to weld plastic. YOu may want to research plastic welding. However, because there is such a large market for used parts; it may be cheaper to get one off of a wreck rather than repair.

Factory service manuals that have been scanned and converted to Adobe Acrobat files are available for just a few dollars on eBay. Although I cannot tell you that I have seen the instructions to remove the bumper cover in these manuals they have the most complete instructions available since the original paper manual is put out by Subaru.

that depends. does your 325e have a aluminum bumper or a plastic bumper? if it has the aluminum bumper, you should order new bumper shocks for an post face-lift 87 model. post 8/87. the reason? the shocks that fit aluminum bumpers are very long, and if u attach a plastic bumper, it will stick out too far. if the 325e has a plastic bumper, then everything will be as easy as detaching and re-attaching your bumper.

The "bumper," "plastic ring" or "ring guard" should never be moved from the top. The purpose is to protect the graduated cylinder from breaking if it tips over. That is why you don't see them on plastic graduated cylinders.

I do not believe there is a metal bumper. There is a foam insert that goes inside the bumper cover.

Remove all the screws underneath the front of the car that hold the plastic skirt on. Then remove the screws nearest the front of the car that are in the front wheel wells holding the plastic panels in. Lastly remove the bolts at the top of the bumper assembly near the headlights that hold the bumper snug to the front frame. Pull gently outwards on each side of the bumper to disengage then pull forward. If you have foglights installed you should disconnect the wiring from each one before pulling the bumper completely away from the car. Reverse process to install.

Steel on the inside, a plastic cover on the outside.

You have to take out the bumper. Just take out the screws that are in the fender, take out the plastic cover that it is under the car that is attached to the bumper, take out the clips of the plastic grille with the Honda logo and pull the bumper. Don't apply to much force. When the bumper is out you will see the other bolts to remove the headlight.

Remove the screws in the wheel wells and underneath the plastic cover to remove the bumper cover. Then you can see to remove the actual bumper.

Today the outer bumper shell is made of plastic. The inner bumper is made of steel or alluminum.

undo two or three screws just inside both front wheel arches then where the bonnet meets bumper there are little black plastic gromets , take them out, then pull bumper away from front wings they should pop out of plastic slides then go to front of car and pull complete bumper fowards and off.

In order to repair a broken bumber, you should apply an adhesive to the plastic and let it sit. Then use a plastic welder to mold the plastic back together. If it is just a dent in the bumper, you can use heat and hammer to press the pop back out.

Yes NO they have 2 types of sport packages--multi pc. STEEL front bumper and a 1 pc. PLASTIC front bumper--the grill fot this bumper is larger and will not fit the steel bumper.

To remove a scratch on a plastic car bumper sand it lightly. If the scratch did not come out, fill it with filler. Next clean the area. Block off the parts of the bumper that you do not want to get paint on. Spray primer over the area and then finish with spray paint in the correct color.

Take the old one off, and install the new one. Dick.

A type of bumper made out of soft flexible plastic that deforms slightly at low speed impact and has a foam backing - this will stop the bumper cracking

remove plastic rivets and bolts holding bumper within fender well, between lights near hood latch, and bottom of bumber, be careful taking bumper off to prevent cracking. exact opposite for installing bumper

Bumper removal: 1.) Remove 4 screws (2 each side) on the bottom of the bumper, below where the cornering lights are. These hold the plastic undercarriage pieces to the bumper. 2.) Remove plastic "skid plate" by removing plastic "screw bolts" (like the ones that hold the grill on under the hood). I believe there's like 5 across the bottom. 3) There 2 screws on each side that hold the bumper in place (just below the headlights) Turn your wheel all the way to the left (for passenger side) Pull back the fenderwell to gain access behind the bumper. 1st screw/bolt is right there by the edge and the 2nd is furthur down about 3/4 to the front of the headlamp assembly. 3.) Under the hood, there's the plastic clips/bolts that hold the grill and bumper in place, you don't have to remove the grill from the bumper if you don't need to. Remove the plastic clips farthest to the outside. This should release the bumper from the car completely. (oh and first remove the plastic air duct thing that flows air to the intake) Alternate I just replaced my bulbs without removing the bumper. I found this way far easier, however it too, takes some time. You need to Jack the vehicle up and remove the wheels. Following this, remove the plastic wheel well. There are about 6 screws and about 6 rivots. After this is removed, you have access to all of the lights on either side of the vehicle. This was far easier than removing the whole bumper and only took me 30 minutes!!

if you look under the car from the front bumper (05-07 models) you will see a plastic cover protecting the car's engine from Debris. There is one square that has three plastic screws and labeled oil filter under here. Do a half turn on the three screws and pop the cover off. and there is your oil filter
