Last weekend I got the range in some deeper than expected water, I actually had to give her some gas when she started bogging. Water basically cresting over the hood.

Anyway I noticed today the front bumper is dipping a bit, as if when I gassed it the waters forced tweaked the front bumper. Anyone have this issue? Alot involved in re-hanging the bumper? It's off maybe 1/2" from side to side... I noticed because the gap between the headlights and bumper is different left to right.

Thanks.

This would be the thrid time I got myself into a wading situation where I basically wasn't sure if I was going to end up marooned on the roof of the rangie.

They say to measure before you wade, I can't help but to say to myself, "well how deep could it possibly be." haha.

I think the manual says 22" is safe for wading, I've had her in much deeper water by mistake :think:

The bumper is held by 6 screws and 2 clips. The screws are under the grille (4) and in the front, in the air intake under the license plate. The edges of the bumper are clipped in two plastic rails and it is possible that it just got out but I'm afraid one of the rails is broken. The wheel arches have a screw each in the front that have to be removed to take apart the lower plastic trim under the bumper. Removing the bumper requires 2 persons because there are all the cables from the sensors and fog lights and also the water pipes for the headlamp washers. I tried to remove it alone and I broke one of the clips. I would suggest using some grease on the rails when refitting, this eases the process but two persons are still required. The water pipes are long enough to allow fiddling without removing the jets, but these are held by two metal clamps that require no tools to get off.
