Information - Bumper Beam

Support bar is an important component of the vehicle, which is responsible for protecting from both bending and shock loads. Furthermore, the bar is designed to carry considerable weight of the car and protect other parts from damage. When speaking about its construction, it is a frame on which the shock absorber is mounted. Shock absorber is obligatory in all motor cars. Metal support bar is like an impact action absorber. In case of fender bender shock absorber is that part that carries the main shock.

Support bar damage is usually associated with accidents, but the constant operation of the car on a bad road can also cause failure of the support bar. These conditions are the reason of this part failure. Another cause of the problem with the bar can be corrosion. But this problem occurs mostly in cars older than 10-15 years. For safety driving and to avoid possible accidents, damaged support bar must be immediately replaced. It is not so difficult to replacement this part. First you need to remove the splash guard and dismantle the body sidewalls. However, if you have no necessary tools or do not want to waste your time, it is better to apply to the car workshop to replace the bar.

Still, do not forget to buy a new part before going to the service centre. It is more expensive in the car workshop. But the worse thing is that it can be not available. Today it is very easy to order the necessary spare part. Whatever part you need (mirrors, fog lights or centre silencer) in our online shop they are at very moderate prices.

You need just to order the part for your car and within several days you will be able to replace it.

What you need to know about bumper reinforcement: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

The bumper reinforcement has no specified lifetime limit. The component is to be replaced if mechanically damaged, and also as a result of wide corrosion damage.

Bumper structure defectiveness is indicated by its deformation, appearance of rust and cracks. It is difficult to perform diagnostics of the bumper absorber yourself: in most cases it is possible to know about damage only after bumper demounting. A professional equipment may be required for this; moreover, there is a risk of difficulties during demounting and installation of the component. That is why the front or rear bumper reinforcement should be inspected at a service station.

It is also recommended to entrust replacement of the bumper beam to car station specialists. Gaps between headlights and the bonnet may appear as a result of unprofessional installation. In most cases it is necessary to remove a radiator grill plate during replacement of the front bumper reinforcement. Then, wheel arch covers, fog lights, mudguards (if they are installed on the car) are demounted, as well as the bumper itself. Having demounted the reinforcement, specialists will install a new one and perform assembling in reverse order.
