Audi Bumper Repair Questions

The Audi bumper is an integral part of the Audi and contributes to the appearance and features of the car. There may be instances when an Audi bumper repair or installation becomes necessary. With helpful instructions this may be a task which can be accomplished by the Audi owner, though in most cases, professional installation is recommended. There may be other questions and problems related to Audi bumpers, Audi bumper protectors and where to turn for help on repairs. Read below where questions have been answered by Experts.

Is a recirculation valve located under the front bumper near the turbo on a Audi?

The recirculation valve is located on the turbo hose, which is visible better from the lower passenger side of the vehicle. It can be accessed from the bottom of the vehicle as long as the hose is followed, right off the turbo. It is better to be viewed from the bottom of the vehicle.

How much would it cost to replace and install a new Audi front bumper with matching paint for an Audi A4 (2005 model)?

First thing that needs to be noted is, prices of parts and labor are always based on the location of the purchase. This is a very difficult item to estimate without knowing the location of the owner. An aftermarket bumper will have to be purchased. The cost of paint and labor can then be added. The cost of labor needed to install this is another thing to consider as well as painting cost.

Would it be possible to go about Audi bumper repair as an owner when the plastic bumper was bumped and bent?

In order to go about this Audi bumper repair the Audi bumper needs to be heated from the inside and the dent needs to be pulled out, straightening the Audi bumper. The heat needs to be applied using a propane torch or something which is equivalent to one. However an important point to note is that the heat should not be applied to the Audi bumper directly. It should be at least two inches away from the Audi bumper. If not confident in handling all these actions, it is probably better to get it done in a repair shop.

What can be done if, during regular maintenance, the rear Audi bumper and two support hinges were discovered to be damaged?

Case Details: The Audi A6 Quattro was involved in an accident and there appeared to be no visible damage.

With respect to damage which is not apparent or visible it could have easily been overlooked by the police officer. In such a scenario the garage or shop carrying out the repairs need to be informed of the accident after which they can physically re-examine the car for any issues arising due to the recent accident. In case problems are discovered, the insurance company needs to be intimated and they will in contact the concerned parties about the payment. If the problems with the Audi are unrelated to the accident, the repairs may need to be arranged as per the insurance agreement terms and conditions.
