Front bumper in the heat

I noticed going back to my car this week that the front bumper wasn't sat flush with the body, there's been no damage to it anytime previous aside from catching speed bumps, is it the heat because it's plastic or am I missing something? Anyone else with the issue?

Hi Mate,

In my opinion its the heat, Remembering back to when I took the bumper and front lower grill off and plastic they are made of is very flexible.

Hope this helps

That's my thoughts because it's only just started doing it and when I push one side in the other pops out, just wondered if I wasn't the only one

Mine does this too, it's driving me nuts at the moment because in the morning when the temperature is low it creaks and clicks, then after it's been in the sun all day it stops!
