The right side of my rear bumper is hanging a little lower than the left side, its probably a 1/4" difference at the most (just enough to anger me!). I can see two adjustment type of bolts just infront of the bumper attaching to the car. I cannot reach these, can anyone tell me how? It will probably only involve a quarter turn or so... anyone have any answers?

Thank you for your time,

Mike McKinney

I have the exact same problem on my C-class, only it's on the driver's side. And if you look closely, you can tell that the trim/bumper does not line up perfectly in the wheel well! I think there are 2 clips or something on that side of the bumper that are not on properly.

Mike,

The 190 rear bumper is attached to the car with 6 bolts in total. There are 2 bolts (17mm wrench if I remember correctly) under each taillight in the deeper well of the trunk just besides the chassis beams. These can be loosened to re- adjust the rear-side of the bumper.
At each side is one bolt (10mm wrench) that will take care of the alignment of the side of the bumper. These adjustment bolts will make it possible to rotate the sides of the bumper in regard of the rear.
The side bolts can be reached through a possible "door" in the quarter panel upholstery at the inner side of the trunk or after removing this upholstery (if the "door" is not present...).
If the side of the bumper was hit by something, it is possible that the plastic clamp at the side of the bumper is broken. These can be exchanged (after removing the bumper).

David,

You can re-adjust the side of your bumper as well. There is a plastic guidance at the side of the bumper that has to be loosened after which you can push it up and fasten it again to match the bumper height with the bottom of the fender.
It is the easiest way to re-adjust the side of the bumper after you removed the lower part of the dirt panel (under the fender/behind the bumper).
If you want me to, I van send you some pics of the mentioned guidance and the dirt panels...

greetingz,

Please do post pictures and step by step! I am glad to find out that this can (hopefully) be corrected with minimal trouble!

It can be corrected without any costs involved. I have to get the pictures from my digital camera (I can only do that with my laptop) and will mail you the pics and explanation within 24 hours.
