Hey guys,

We're all pretty guilty of parking too close concrete stoppers in carparks and have subsequently scraped the underside of the bumper, breaking the plastics tabs :( And they are VERY expensive from Mazda...

Item No.3 in the pic:
http://www.trademotion.com/schematics/5/5416672.gif

Through a reputable source in the US, I can purchase clips for both sides for around $18.50delivered anywhere in Aus, so who's in! Only catch this is available for the first 8 people, so get in quick!! I will be doing an order on the weekend sometime ;)

EDIT: As at 10.00am I have purchased 8 pairs, so these should arrive either late next week or the week after ;)

Cheers

i'd assume so, seeing there the same headlight bar seperate hi/lo beams ;)

I'll order them at lunch time, supposedly its express shipping, so may have them by late next week :D

hehehe :p

Anyways I have now ordered them, and ordered 8 seeing it shipping was cheaper again, so would be around $18.50 delivered anywhere in Australia (pending the shipping is correct!!) So I should have them in 3-7 business days supposedly! :D

This puts the wheels in motion. Get my lip. Take the front bar off for a colour match and respray and at the same time do the headlight blackout. Nice.

Thanks Marc.

New solution to the problem

Hmmm, not the way I would describe it :p

You still need to have working headlight clips, otherwise the top corner of the bumper (pointy bit) will stick out from the headlight.

These are a complimentary solution ;)

phunkdust
25-02-2011, 03:10 PM
Well new solution as in not just constantly replacing clips.

If your original clips are broken, you'd still need new ones... The brackets are moreso a preventative measure so you dont keep breaking clips.

I did the gb for these clips as there wasn't a time frame for when the brackets would go into production..

Agreed. If you have ordered headlight clips, stick with it as you still need them and it is a great deal :)

There still isn't a definitive timeframe :( but "hopefully a few weeks"

Update:

I received an email back in the early hours of this morning from the supplier, telling me my credit card details were incorrect, just they neglected to mention that to me!! :mad::mad::mad:

So I have re-emailed my credit card details, so they should be sent off as soon as they charge the card...

Sorry fella's for this :(

if your bumper is sagging your better off getting sag bumper brackets from..http://www.mazdas247.com/forum/showthread.php?123795298-AAC-Protege-Bumper-Brackets

as the clips are just to hold the bumper in, super hard to get them to clip in and probably will break if you take the bumper off again. with the brackets they support the bar and hold it in place. they were $65 shipped from usa. quite a few many have them

marcs_sp20
07-10-2011, 09:55 PM
They were in the area of around $30ea when I did this GB months ago :eek: Unfortunately I sold all of them. I bought the ones from the GB from onlinemazdaparts.com (they are actually a mazda service department :p), get 4-5 other people in on teh GB and it'll dramatically reduce the postage
