Hey all.

A week after I bought my car I drove in a low speed neer my house to a short fence.

My front bumper got a little hit.

Is there an easy way to fix these without open the screws inside?

unfortunately you seem to have the early gen (for us) style bumper (US safety reg. changed and caused all 1987 - later models to have bigger, uglier bumpers) - I had damage to my rear one and ended up chucking it and putting on a later one (and after a severe front end collision, I had to ditch the front one too) - it is a REAL pain to even try to bend the plastic back into shape - been there - heat doesn't even help much (though I used it spareingly because I did not want to ignite anything)

However if the metal is damaged it may be manageable - unbolting the bumper is not hard - two 14 or 16 mm (can't remember) bolts on each side (4 in all) - look below the charcoal canister (if you have one) on the right side, and the battery on the left - it is relatively quick and straitfoward

just out of curiosity - do you know the Subaru letter designation for you engine? I noticed it is a 1.6 Liter in (what we refer to) an EA82 series body - is your engine overhead cam (with timing belts)? Sorry, but I find it interesting, as they were never offered over here. - I know they were offered in Europe, but that's all I know.
