After installing my R front bumper I just noticed I forgot to take this off my old one.
How important is this black foam thingee?
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?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Brian

That is CRASH ABSOBING material. 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.
