Common Problems with the Chevrolet Colorado Bumper Covers

Built from the most durable and highest quality of materials, Chevrolet Colorado bumper covers meet and even exceed OE specifications. Aside from protecting your bumper against dents and scratches, the cover improves the overall look of your truck. It gives your Chevrolet Colorado a meaner, tougher look that it deserves. Since bumper covers are designed to shield your truck's headlights, fog lights, and grille during front-end collisions, it's prone to scratches, cracks, or dents. Once you notice these signs of damage, it's time to do some troubleshooting. Below are the most common problems encountered by Chevrolet Colorado owners, and the possible culprits behind them:

Loose bumper cover

When you notice a gap between your truck's bumper and its bumper cover, the supports may be loose. This is one of the most common problems encountered by truck owners who have bumper covers installed on their vehicles. Over time, the fasteners, clips, or bolts may have come loose due to vibrations, loose threads, or minor fender-benders. Also, if the truck owner installed an ill-fitting bumper cover, it will eventually come loose. This problem can be easily resolved by making sure that the screws, fasteners, or clips are secured properly. For corroded metal screws or fasteners, remove the old ones and then buy a new set to fasten the bumper cover properly.

Dents, cracks, and scratches

Since bumper covers are designed to protect your truck's bumpers, scratches, dents, and cracks are a common sight on the covers. It can affect the overall look of your truck and be a real eyesore. These problems are usually caused by front and rear fender-benders, parking mishaps, and other driving accidents. To fix these dents, you can either use a heat gun (for plastic bumper covers) or a rubber mallet (for metal bumper covers) to restore it to its original form. You can apply small amounts of body filler to smoothen out scratches on your bumper covers. Cracks, on the other hand, need polyurethane bonding agents to properly bind the broken plastic together. Flexible body filler is also used to smoothen out the rough edges after filling the gaps. A good spray of paint is recommended to restore its original color.

  • Keeping Your Chevrolet Colorado Bumper Covers in Excellent Shape 27 February 2013

    Usually made from high-quality fiberglass, metal, or ABS plastic, your Chevrolet Colorado's bumper cover is designed to help absorb shock during a front- or rear-end collision. It adds extra reinforcement to your truck's bumpers to protect the vehicle's individual parts like the tail lights, grille, headlights, fog lamps, and fenders. Also, since the bumper cover strengthen the protective and shock absorbency features of your truck's bumpers, it protects you and your passengers during collisions. Aside from protection, it also adds an aesthetic appeal to your truck, making it sleeker and more unique. If you want to retain your bumper cover's good looks and protective features, it's important to perform routine maintenance on it. Here are some tips to help you keep your bumper covers in excellent shape:


    Keep it clean.


    Keeping your truck's bumper cover clean is part of routine maintenance since a dirty bumper cover can really affect your truck's overall look. Use mild car shampoo mixed with a pail of water to thoroughly clean the bumper cover. Scrub it to remove any dirt, grime, or grease residue. Make sure to also clean the bumper and bumper cover undersides to remove hidden dirt or debris from them.


    Check and inspect.


    Grime, mud, and dirt can mask damage on your bumper cover, while a good clean can easily unmask them. Inspect the bumper cover and run your hands on it to feel for any sign of damage that is invisible to the naked eye. Do not forget to check the bumper cover's fasteners, securing bolts, bracket, and underside for cracks or dents. Assess the amount of damage that your bumper cover sustained to see if repairs can be done, or if a replacement bumper cover is needed.


    Repair, mend, or replace.


    Since most bumper covers are either made from ABS plastic or fiberglass, there are numerous repair kits available in the market today. Plastic and fiberglass repair kits usually include contact cements, flexible body fillers, and epoxies that will help you with your repair project. Scratches can be easily mended with small amounts of fillers and a little bit of sanding. If the damage to the bumper cover is beyond repair, it's better to buy a replacement bumper cover for your truck.
