In the event of a low-speed front- or rear-end collision, your bumper shields the rest of your vehicle from damage by receiving the brunt of the impact. Normally, after a light collision, all you'll have to deal with is a fixable dent or two. But if the slightest contact causes your bumper to sag, then you've got a bad Bumper Bracket in your ride. The only solution to this type of problem is to replace damaged bumper brackets as soon as possible. As you can already guess from its name, your bumper assembly's brackets are designed to hold your bumper against your car's frame, chassis, or body. Without this bracket, your bumper will sag, or worse, break off completely from your vehicle. Now, you wouldn't want that happening to your car, right? That's why, it's highly-recommended that you check your bumper once in a while. And if you discover widespread rusting or other forms of damage on your bumper connections, do away with your old brackets. Now, before you purchase just any bracket for your bumper assembly, keep in mind that bumper brackets may differ depending on your vehicle's make and model. The best way to determine if a Bumper Bracket is compatible with your car is by making sure its specs matches those of your original equipment's. To make it even easier for you to find the right bumper brackets for you ride, narrow down your search results by using the "Shop by Vehicle" option in our site.

Geared Up and Prepared: Replacing Your Car's Bumper Bracket

Bumpers are your protectors against massive damage during low-speed collisions. Upon experiencing a mild collision, bumpers are usually left with dents but are still repairable. However, if your car gets a mild hit and the bumper slumps already, it's telling you that you need a new bumper bracket to support it. Changing your bumper bracket is relatively simple and can be done in your own garage.

Here's a step by step procedure on how to replace your bumper bracket:

Difficulty level: Moderate

Tools to be used:

  • Drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Socket and ratchet set
  • Trim panel removal tool
  • New bumper bracket

Step 1: Locate a level surface and park your car. Open the hood and detach the bumper cover from your vehicle by loosening the cover with a door trim panel.

Step 2: At the end of the bumper cover in the wheelwell, you'll notice clips or screws along the top and bottom throughout the cover. Unfasten all these clips or unbolt these screws mounting the bumper cover to your car. Set the bumper aside and place it on a safe location to prevent damaging it.

Step 3: Disengage any wires or connectors such as fog lights from the bumper. Then, locate the bumper bracket or "side supports" beneath the fender on the right and left side of your vehicle.

Step 4: Unbolt the brackets from your car by removing the two bolts holding the bumper brackets. Check the area, around and underneath the bumper bracket, carefully for any damage that may impede the bracket installation.

Step 5: Get your new bumper brackets and install them on their respective places. Tighten each bolt to secure the bracket.

Step 6: Attach the bumper cover to the bumper brackets. Lock the bumper cover on the bracket by sliding it back and forth. Reattach the clips or screws and make sure that they are secured tight enough.
