Hi All,

I am probably the only Vauxhall Astra J owner that managed to crash his car in less than a week of owning it..

Automotive parking light Car Vehicle Automotive lighting Grille


Cosmetic damage only..I will need to replace the Front Bumper/Grill/Headlights. Everything else seems to be in working condition.

However, I am struggling to find the exact bumper. I would prefer it to be new and paint it myself. Could someone help me identify what exactly I need as I am only finding this model, which certainly won't work:

Many thanks in advance.

Oh, I also found one hanging wire. As all the lights are in working condition, I was wondering what this could be

The "wire" is the outside temp sensor,

This is what makes it so confusing..most of the websites will not match the right parts. I will get around it in time, as I said, I only bought it 1 week ago.

Could I ask you what n/s comes from? I've also seen some items listed with n/s/f and I am not sure what it means.

Thank you in advance.

n/s = nearside (lefthand on rhd car) n/s/f = nearside front, n/s/r = nearside rear etc etc
o/s = off side (righthand on rhd car)

I know..I'm such a dumb ass. I'm dissapointed with myself as I'm not usually like this..but I guess **** happens and I hope my bad luck depleted with this event.

Another question if I may. With the whole emerging from the crash, I noticed where my coolant is leaking from. I believe this is a pre-existing issue that I bought the car with.

Would anyone recommend something like this? Would it even fit well and all? It's either this or other aftermarket alternatives that have plastic sides, like the following:

The original part is excesively expensive and I would avoid that if I can.

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,
Stefan

You'll struggle to find a used bumper for your car as your spec is rare.. or youll pay a silly price for a used one.

get a new primed one it should only require paint
start of my asking vauxhall as sometimes main dealer is cheaper than third parties

Here are used ones:

Thanks mocool. I've seen those on ebay but they are broken and repaired. The Vauxhall genuine ones are more than £1000 and I am not even sure it comes sprayed in the right colour. I will keep looking
