I'm replacing my main radiator and found this.
Do you agree with my thinking that it would be impossible for me to have done this without breaking the bumper cover and probably damaging that front radiator? So it had to have been improperly repaired by a previous owner, right?
Bad side vs good side:
Hood Automotive tire Bumper Gas Motor vehicle
Automotive lighting Automotive tire Vehicle Automotive tail & brake light Chair


Edit:actually it's more of just a radiator support than a frame rail and it was very easy to bend back into place, but I'd rather replace it if possible, what's it called?
After bending back;
Automotive tire Asphalt Bumper Gas Bottle

I don't know what it's called but it looks like part 2276258 (left) or part 22762759 (right).

I'm confused how this is a suspension component, but ok. Thanks for the link 👍


It sort of looks like you may be missing a cross bar that connects the 2 extensions. The front bumper cover attaches to a cross bar on my 2011 Volt.
I thought you were talking about crash bar at first, but I took another look at it and found that these are extensions off of the cross bar that the bumper cover attaches to. Which means the are in fact lower than I originally thought compared to the bumper cover and I probably did in fact do this myself.
