Customer Question

Basically my minivan has been sitting for three years. The rear of the van/bumper "UNDERNEATH" is all rusted. I need to replace the whole rear BACK. Can you tell me what is the proper name for this if any? Also, could you tell me where I can buy a used part.

HI, Ok, can you take some photos of the rusted areas and use the paperclip icon on your reply box to upload them here so I can take a look and make a list of the parts needed.

Hello could you tell me, please?
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
HI, I am looking at my catalogue and it doesnt show a separate rear frame, just the complete frame from front to rear and no listing for a price and looking thru my national parts locator, none are pulling up as available. I will have to make some calls in the morning
