Partly Detached Mountings - Front Undertray - Repair Method
On some 1995-97 MY Sedan Range vehicles, the undertray may become partly detached from the bumper cover. If the rivet has pulled cleanly away
from one or more of the tangs on the bumper cover moulding, the rivet can be drilled out and replaced by a spring clip and bolt.
It is not necessary to replace the front bumper cover and undertray assembly if the tangs are intact, even if split where a rivet has pulled away through the
edge of the material.
The same method should also be used should it be necessary to install a new undertray to the existing bumper cover.
In case of a customer complaint a loose undertray on a 1995-97 MY Sedan Range vehicle, perform the following procedure:
Raise the vehicle to a convenient working height.
Drill out any displaced rivet.
Place a spring nut over the tip of the tang on the bumper cover.
Align the undertray with the tang, and secure in place with a Torx-head bolt. It will be necessary to keep the spring clip from rotating as the bolt is
tightened, and to fully align the spring nut to the tang.
Do not hold the spring nut with the fingers while tightening the bolt. Rotation of the thin metal could cause personal injury - use pliers to prevent
Spring nut - 6 mm
Torx screw - 6 mm

Any claims for replacement of bumper cover/undertray assemblies will be debited if examination of returned material shows evidence of the undertray
