Question Advice please re 99/00 (V reg) scenic1.6 Monaco (new shape)

Hi Guys,
I have or rather had a fantastic Ren, described above, untill driver (who had been drinking) managed to plough into six stationary cars parked along the road outside my house ~ 4 cars written off including her own!
The Scenic was third in line and suffered horrible damage to front and rear bumpers - the ins service engineer has written it off. But I've decided to reclaim it (for a fee) & with the help of ebay hope to rejuvinate it back to life.
Trying to get hold of relevant haynes manual, but in the meantime please could any of you guys familiar with this project share any guidance tips and hints about the best methods or techniques for removing and refitting the bumpers, round fog lights and so on.

many thanks

Hi there Christoff.

Really rotten luck there.

I'm presuming you'll be ordering secondhand/salvage bumpers? The simplest way to find out where the mounting points are, is to wait until the new parts arrive, and inspect them.

Your biggest problem may be the mounting points on the car - they may have been broken/distorted by the impact, so there may well be some heavy fettling (i.e. bashing with a sledgehammer) or welding involved.



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