    rear bumper

    Will a new style VR rear bumper fit my 91 16v?

    I think its just the shell so it it easy to change the mountings over?

    it'll fit mechanically, but you will find that it sits slightly proud of the bodywork where it joins the wheel arches/rear wings as the late bumpers are designed for the slightly wider body face lift models...

    Shouldn't be enough to jump out and you and scream that it's the wrong bumper though...

    If it attaches to the iron work anything like the front ones do (and I'm reasonably certain they do) they just clip on to the ironwork and then have a wedge shaped plug pushed into the clips to keep them tight into the holes in the ironwork...

    I thought the slightly wider with was the only difference anyway or are there more differences?

    there's a slight difference with the line around the top of the bumper, but on the rear I'm pretty sure they're the only 2 differences...
