MG MGF Technical - Cracked Front Spoiler
|Can anyone help? I pulled into my station car park the other day and went a bit too far. After realising that my front spoiler had hit the kerb I reversed back which cracked the front (just under the headlight). This is my first bit of damage in the two years I have had my F and as you can imagine I'm gutted! Is there a way of repairing the crack or do I need to have the whole front moulding replaced? Has anyone had a similar accident?|
The plastic bumpers can be repaired with an electronic welding device - I am sure one of our gallant owners will be able to give you more advice.
If it helps to soften the anguish I have done the same but have been fortunate in that I have got away with just scratches underneath.
Sorry to hear about your accident. It hasn't happened to me. On the occasions that I have gone a bit too far, the metal splitter thing underneath the front of the car scrapes a little on the kerb without causing any damage.
My dealer repaired a crack in my rear bumper by some clever electronic welding. After a respray, it looked as good as new.
It might be worth enquiring with your dealer if this is possible in your case.
Good luck !!
|the whole front spoiler is not that expensive, about £175... so why not change it?|
Mike Satur has a nice new fron bumper assembly for £99 +vat+delivery.
May be your answer
