What is the cost of having a front bumper replaced on a Renault Megane MK3 5dr?

We need a new bumper, but by 'new' I don't necessarily mean a brand new part from Renault. A quick look on Ebay shows that they can be bought for 60, however it says that they have a few 'scuffs and scratches'.

Roughly, how much would it cost a garage to order a front bumper for this car? And how much SHOULD he be charging to install it, assuming it needs painting to the right shade as well?

Also, on a separate note, how much does having quite bad dents/crumples, with scratches, on the whole side of the car cost to have knocked out? Our garage have told us that it doesn't need new skins as it can be knocked out and sprayed, but how much should that cost as well?

A nice little rough breakdown would be nice The car is black, if it makes any difference.

Re: What is the cost of having a front bumper replaced on a Renault Megane MK3 5dr?

Hello n wellcome.

Thats really far too vague in my opinion.
Even if you had a swathe of pics taken,It would be hard to tell.

Any sourced bumper will have to be repainted unless you are lucky enough to get a used one in your exact car colour.
The actual fitting shouldnt take more than an hr,in a competent place,but a 1 hr labour cost is only part of what you describe..
I had half of a front plastic bumper part resprayed and blended and cost was about 75 and according to opinions here,that was cheap.
No fitting or removal involved.

Pings dings and miscellaneous scratches ,I doubt if anyone could "guess".
There are pro body repairers on site but For a quote like you describe and on the info supplied.
The professional:
All he/she could do is estimate the cost of reskinning and repainting the whole side of a clio including welding and then say the cost would be slightly less than that...
Not very feasible.

From what you say, I'd reckon on budgeting 1000-1500 all-in.

Lots of trim needing dismantled and filling/smoothing/prep work before spraying & reassembly.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
