Rear Bumper Fasteners

10-07-2009, 08:45 AM
A body shop is telling me that there are just 3 bolts holding the rear bumper of my 09 Jetta TDI to the body. True or False? I am asking because the car was rear ended and the repaired bumper is being supported by 3 bolts.

turns out there are 5 bolts securing the bumper to the body. 3 on the passenger side and 2 on the driver side. Stange that vw would have non-symetrical fastening of a bumper.

Yesterday I inspected the repair prior to painting and sure enough, there were just 5 holes to be filled.
