WK Front Bumper
Hey everyone, the lower lip of my front bumper seems to be popping out by the opening in the middle. I push them back in place but they always pop back out, is there any fix for this? please let me know. thanks in advance

Re: WK Front Bumper
You are missing a clip or maybe the tab broke where the clip holds it. Look from the bottom there are 5(should be) push n turn clips to hold it.

Re: WK Front Bumper
i dont think those turn clips hold it in where ur saying, i think ur talking about the air dam.... if so the pointed part right near the opening under the grill is a pain to get in, make sure that its hooked into the bumper correctly under the fender on both sides if one isnt in right it will make the whole thing not go in right. if there good try pulling out some of the tabs (carefully they will rip if your not careful with them) and then pop it back in. the ones near the opeing are a pain so just push it in and make sure u hear the click of the tab going in

Re: WK Front Bumper
The 08-10 have a removable lower bumper section that overlaps the upper bumper, not just the black air dam. I started having the same problem in the spring, after converting from the 05-07 front. The tab just to the passenger side of the lower air opening pops out daily. There are no clips that hold it in & no room behind it to put a small clamp. I have thought about doing something janky, like trying to build up the tickness of the tab with epoxy or stuffing something behind the upper section to bulge it out and improve the catch angle. If you come up with anything, let me know.

I removed my lower in late August, to run some late season trails, & brainstomed while I was under there. There's just no room for an easy fix on tab that keeps popping out on mine.
