Alfa 156

Rear bumper

And on a possibly related note, is there an easy way of telling when a rear bumper has been bumped too hard?

156 was lightly rear-ended at the lights the other day and although all looked OK at the time, I noticed today that the paint on the top surface of the rear bumper has crazed across the width of the car, which leads me to wonder whether the impact structure underneath has been permanently damaged. Suppose I should get someone to have a proper look...

The bumper is only fastened on to the car with 10 or so small torx bolts on top and 4 or so at the bottom, so no specific bumper mounts ro worry about - unlike a GTV, for instance. Without removing the bumper its difficult to tell if the bumper initially deformed enough to allow damage to the rear boot panel, but if the boot itself opens and closes easily, there is probably not too much damage. However, assuming you have the details of the miscreant who hit you, I'd be inclined to take it for a professional check, at their expense. Sounds like you'll at least need the bumper repainting.
