Front Bumper loose...

Hello,

I was washing my Envoy today (finaly, end of winter!), and while cleaning the front bumper, i've noticed that it's moving... It seem loose, not well attached. I've looked and god, everything is plastic under there!!! No wonder it can get loose.

Driving around at night, if I turn on the Fog light, I can see the light trembling while I drive, this again tells me that my front bumper is not fixed tight.

Should I report this problem next time I visit the dealer? Is it fixable?

Sounds like it's REALLY loose. Are there any missing plugs in the bottom gap area? There should be 4 plastic ones 2 f which whould be hidden by the plate number. You could also push the sides of the bumper inwards, maybe it's slipping off. And finally, you should also check the bottom sides. There are 2 plastic plugs, one on each side that hold the bumper into place. Keep us posted

Thanks for the information. Everything seem to be in place!!! Why would they fix the bumper only with little plastic pins? I bet it's the first thing that would fly off in the smallest front accident.... I would not even rest my feet on it!

I'll talk with my dealer about it, i'm still under waranty so...

That's sounds bad. Well, try getting your dealer to swap it for a new one. Just say ho it might fall off and you might run over it and cause ingury to others from flying pieces of plastic and stuff like that. Try to get him to say "Ok, ok i'll replace it!"

I actually found both of those plastic plugs that go into the bumper from the bottom center area where the license plate goes to be loose a few months back and pushed it up really hard and it doesnt wobble any more.

On a SUV of this price, don't tell me that this is not cheap finishing....

What did they do with the rear bumper? It's strong and in place, nothing loose there, no wobble. They could have done the same thing in the front.

Check on the side of the bumper. Where it is next to the fender. There is like a small type of bracket/piece of plastic. My started to wooble after i hit another car( at about 5 mph ) then i noticed that that bracket/plastic piece is broken . I'm not going to replace it b/c i'm putting a SS conversion so i might not need it. I f i do i just buy it but im sure its $$.
