Re: Front of Clio II smashed, what parts will i need for repair HELP

In all honesty You really need to get stripping before you know eaxactly what parts are required. Not all body parts are bolt-on some are welded to strengthen the framework of the car but the stripping process will reveal which is which.

I take it you have had the wheel alignment checked to see if there is any underlying damage which may cause serious problems later. No point in lashing out money on repairs only to find you are faced with greater expense later on. Even expert body shops can run into such problems

I take it you have notified your insurers- they may take a dim view if the repairs are not up to professional standards. Also failure to report could end up invalidating your insurance cover.
