Re: Front of Clio II smashed, what parts will i need for repair HELP
Sorry to hear about your misfortunes.
Looking at that damage, you'll definitely need a bonnet, slam panel and front bumper. The headlights only have three screws so you may have been lucky there. However, there is a metal bumper bar that runs directly behind the plastic bumper. If you have bent this then you will need a bodyshop to pull it out and repair it. There may also be damage to your air con radiator (if you have it) as that sits directly behind the vertical part you have bought with the slam panel (that vertical bit is held on by two bolts, don't cut it off!)
I had the front off my Clio when I changed the radiator, there are some pics in this link
which shows you what is behind the bumper including the metal bar I mentioned. The air con radiator sits in front of the engine radiator.
