Rear Bumperette Stud Repair

Here are a few pics of how I repaired the broken studs in the rear bumperettes.
Sorry the pics are so big.

Bumperette Stud Fix.....

Don,

This is a very nice job and looks great. Would you like to elaborate more how you removed and installed the new stud/s? Thanks.

While removing the rear bumpers to get access to the lower valence, I broke 2 studs off of each bumper. I figured the studs had to be attached to an inner metal plate, so I took a pin and pressed it into the rubber around the broken studs and found that there is a steel plate inside. I took a small hole saw(1st pic) and cleared around the broken studs to reveal the plate. Using an air-driven dremel, I removed the studs, and created a slot so I could install the new bolts. The inner plate is not flat, but it is very heavy guage. It appears that the original studs were welded to the plate, so I had alot of cleanup to do. I put some black RTV in the hole, installed the new bolt, then filled the area with more RTV. I figure the RTV will keep the bolt from falling out during installation, while still allowing a bit of flex in case the alignment is off a little.

Don, I hope you don't mind if I ask a similar question to your post.

Has anyone done a similar repair for the rubber bellows at the bumper to fenders? I believe they're 5MM studs...

I don't know how the bellows are put together, but if it's the same principle, I don't see why you couldn't do the same thing, on a smaller scale.

I believe that I saw some repaired billows studs, they appeared that where the stud was on the little metal bracket, it was drilled and a small bolt inserted. I actually found a set of billows laying on the interstate 3 or 4 years ago. They are in storage, if I ever need a set. There was no damage, and I don't have a clue how they got where they were????

Cab Man,

Mine are good, however the last time I had the bumper off one of the studs has recessed into the rubber so there's not enough stud sticking out to get a nut on it. Next time I have the bumper off I'll follow up on our suggestion.

One problem I had and it's my own fault is when I pushed the bumper on by myself I didn't see that the left side bellows wasn't lined up in the opening and the bellows stud remove some paint on the spoiler as I was pushing the bumper into position. Sometimes you need a second hand, and that was one of them.

Thanks,
