Splitter attempted theft

Got back from a trip abroad to find someone had tried to remove my brand new rear splitter using a screwdriver and brute force.

Luckily they must have been disturbed as they didnt finish the job and I managed to clip it back on, but what a cheek!

It's slighly misshaped now in one place and sticks out by a 5mm... needs something to hold it in place... any ideas?

Sorry to hear that, but at least its still intact!

Post a picture, it will be easier for people to advise re the sticking out section.

Will do when i get home in the light (or at the weekend).

The worst part is, the bit they were trying to steal would be useless without the rest of the splitter kit!

I think you should be able to use two of the thieving *&%^% FINGERS to hold it on...would not be a repeat offender !!

They also treat women like 3rd class citizens and they also have an appalling human rights record.

No point comparing different countries laws and methods of justice from the comfort of your democratic country.

If you would like live under those extreme laws may I suggest that you move there.

Not really, I was merely pointing out what some countries do, I didn't say it was right.

If its caused any offence then I apologise unreservedly!

Scumbags.

As Illegalhunter mentions it will be easier to repair if you remove the rear bumper.

Here is the 'How To' for removing/fitting the rear splitter.
