A bumper plays a very crucial role in a vehicle by protecting the front and rear ends against any physical damage. Usually it is a shield made of steel, aluminium, rubber, or plastic that offers protection to the hood, trunk, grill, fuel, exhaust, and cooling systems. In the scenario of a collision, the bumper takes the impact rather than the actual body of the vehicle, in turn protecting all the crucial systems as well as the life of the passengers. They act as shock absorbers and prevent the impact waves from transmitting throughout the vehicle.
Over time, the bumpers can wear out and they will need to be replaced. It is important to maintain the bumper in good condition as they cushion the shock from physical collisions, and a defective bumper means compromised safety levels. The following are some signs that you should go for a bumper bar repair or bumper bar replacement.
- Cracked – If the bumper is cracked, it needs to be replaced. In some exceptional cases, an epoxy and a fiberglass repair kit can be used to repair a bumper. A cracked bumper offers little to no protection during a crash, jeopardising the safety of the vehicle and the passengers, and hence it is crucial to replace them.
- Paint Damage – If there are a lot of scratches or chipped paint on your bumper, it is better to replace it, else a lot of sanding will have to be done to level it. Similarly, if the scratches are deep, they will need to be filled with a compound to even it out. Again, it is a task to get the matching colour to paint the bumper and replacing it would be a better option.
- Damaged or Broken Hooks – A bumper has hooks on them that help them adhere to the valance panel, grill, and splash guard. If these hooks are broken, the bumper may fallat any point. As they cannot be replaced, it is better to replace the bumper.
