How do i put the bumper on?

Postby hispanicpanic » Tue Jul 26, 2016 8:55 pm

I bought a CRX with no front end. I purchased an SI crash beam because there was none before. The bodyshop i took the crx to doesn't know how to put the crash beam on. Nothing lines up. Also there is no where for the hood to latch to. What am i missing here??

Sounds like your missing the T bracket which holds the hood latch.
The steel bumper support is held onto the car by 4 12mm bolts, 2 on each side.

You can see what the car looks like without the bumper cover on, sounds like you're missing some components.

Do they bolt to a separate support bracket? Or do they bolt directly to the subframe/unibody structure?

Notice the kind of square looking piece with the two threaded holes on the left side, that's where the bumper support is supposed to bolt to. It sounds like, you could be missing those, especially if you're saying the bumper support lines up to nothing. It is blatantly obvious if those pieces are there or not.

Ok guys, figured it out. I'm missing the radiator support T bracket and the bumper support brackets. THx :)

Get those, everything should fall into place then and make more sense of how things bolt up.
