Causes Behind Issues of Toyota Avalon Bumper Covers
We think every driver out there, when stuck in traffic, had thought about forcing his way through by ramming all the cars out of the way. If you haven't, then we're guessing you were deprived of the awesome racing games when you were young. The sound of scratching metal, shouting drivers, and loud horns as well as the sight of an open space after a tight traffic are surreal-according to the games we played. But before you put your foot on the pedal and decide to experience the feeling yourself, we recommend that you first check your car's bumper cover. Bumper covers reduce the impact of crashes as well as improve the look of your car; in time, they can show signs of wearing out or get damaged. To help you during these times, we discussed the reasons behind some common problems with the Toyota Avalon bumper covers.
Crazed paint and/or coating
There may come a time when you notice that the paint or coating of your bumper cover has cracks, making the natural color of the cover visible. The cracks aren't because of the brand of the paint or coating you used so you can't blame the manufacturers. Crazed paint or coating is usually caused by a crappy paint job so blame the service shop or yourself. Among the things that could've gone wrong, the most usual scenario is that car owners fail to let the paint and coat layers dry before putting another layer. If you plan to troubleshoot this, we recommend that you remove the entire paint job first before properly doing the task. If left unsolved, the cracks on the paint and coating will eventually rust and damage the cover.
Bumper covers are, yet again, another part that needs to be compatible with your car model and year variation. They need to sit properly on both the bumper and the hood. If you find yourself with a bumper cover that is an inch too long or too short, then you likely have the wrong part. A sign of this problem is a gap in between the bumper assembly and the hood. It is best to consult the car manual before buying a bumper cover.
