After installing my R front bumper I just noticed I forgot to take this off my old one.<BR>How important is this black foam thingee?<BR>Is it just for the 5mph crash protection? Do you guys think the bumper cover will sag without it? Should I tear down the bumper again and put it in?<BR>Any help is appreciated.<BR>Thanks,<BR> Brian<BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.bchang.com/bumperpro.gif">

I don't know if it is for 5 mph or more but by removing it you will be changing the protective properties of your bumper that were incorporated into it when designed by Volvo. I would not remove it if I were you.<P>Yannis<BR><P>
