what is between the bumper beam and front bumper cover?
Posted 19 April 2012 - 06:45 AM
the bumper beam and all is there and unscathed and i have the front bumper cover. but the holes on the top of the bumper cover have nothing to line up with in the bumper beam - so i'm assuming there's a part missing there for the bumper cover to attach to.
i've even repaired a few wrecked legacy's and just can't picture what is supposed to be there.
anyone got a pic?

my car has that bumper beam and cover....but the cover has holes which line up with nothing....scratching my head, i'm obviously missing something, need to find out if it's physically or all mentally!
i'll try to snap a picture later.

the bumper does have a beam going across it just for the bumper cover, and mine is missing that. in the picture above it's Item #3 is pointing directly to the small bar I need.
is that welded or bolted on?
Subaru's website skips this part so I can't find a part number: Item #7 here is in the picture but not the parts and numbers below it:

that looks more complicated than i care to recreate - i'll probably just try and buy one.
thanks for the pictures, those are *perfect* for this question!!

great, thanks. parts database doesn't interchange 95's and 96's, must be why, good call. i would have assumed them the same.
I noticed there were some differences between bumper covers on my 95 and 96. The 95 that upper beam was a bit different, and there were fewer holes in the cover. Not sure if the holes all line up between covers but it should be kept in mind when you go get another bumper beam. Make sure you get one with the right number of holes.

My 97 Outback parts car should have htat part. You'd need to remove it though.

All Foreign in Pburgh has an entire bumper same color for only $100....we'll see, the old cover is usable but ripped....so might make sense to get the entire thing.

Now I don't know when I'll be able to do engine swaps again.
Someone wants both bumper covers, a mirror. I've already sold hood, I htink grille.
Still has like new headlights and someone want sone of the fog's.
I've sold cup holder, radio, etc.
Stole the rad for another car.
I realistically expect it to be around another couple weeks atleast. It's at a friends house 5 miles away.
