Morning,

Long shot....The black plastic front scoop or black plastic insert in the center of the front bumper on my 991.1 C2 has become damaged, not sure how..

It looks like it may of had some form of impact either from below on a speed bump or similar pushing it up or possibly hitting home debris on the road. Rest of bumper looks fine.

Either way the scoop is dislodged and damaged, and a number of clips are broken.

I have a replacement but i am not sure if its a front bumper off job or if i can replace it from the front ?

Anyone have any experience here ?

Many Thanks

Hi there, I managed to replace mine with the bumper in situ - There are small square cut outs on the underside of the bumper and I managed to get one hand in to position the new cover after which I used a small wheel brace to get in behind it to ensure the clips were fully engaged.

A bit awkward but is doable.

That is very useful - given me the confidence to give it a go.

Thank you :worship:
