Subject: Diagram for collapsible element in front bumper on 88 9000?


My partner has unfortunately had a small accident in our 1988 "flat front" 9000T and run into the back of the car in front so the RH side of the front bumper (fender in American, I believe) has been pushed in. There appears to be a collapsible aluminium/foam element that has absorbed the crash forces, but the headlight now faces slightly down and has obviously been pushed back at its lower edge. The car is drivable but I will have to remove all the plastic bits and replace what has been bent. My manuals do not show how the front bumper is constructed so if anyone has a diagram I would appreciate a copy so I know how much I will have to replace. Is the bumper all in one piece or separate sections? Jeremy Massey
