ZRE152R - help with bumper spare parts

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

This is my first time posting here.

Would like some assistance find the part in the attach image.

I have found out this afternoon someone had stolen this part off my front bumper.

It is the circular cap? found on the ZRE152R hatchback front bumper. Sorry I dont know the name of it. Someone can enlighten me what the correct term.

looking to suit black coloured bumper/car.

Would someone point me to the right direction in sourcing one.

Thanks in advanced.

Cheers,

Hey mate, welcome!

As others above have stated, it's a front tow hook cover. To source it, you can either go to any wreckers or go to Toyota Spare Parts of any Toyota Dealer. Getting it from Toyota might be a tad more expensive, but go to Toyota first to see what cost it is first; then you can decide whether you want it from Toyota or go searching from wreckers. :)

It may not have been stolen,they tend to pop out some times if not securely positioned even with the little safety tab they can dislodge , mines popped out twice

Thanks everyone.. i'll check it out with toyota and wreckers.

Thank for the advice.

@juvenile - I reverse parked the car and walk in the front of it, i tend to notice this as it stands out. upon returning it was missing.

Not the first time, i had the side indicators stolen too.

i may be just unlucky..

Cheers,

In Chinese we have a saying "People steal $$ from a beggar's bowl"

Yep fair enough, I notice everything too, yeah they have a little plastic tab to prevent them falling out and worked well on mine. I've seen a lot of rentals missing them as well, stolen for sure then... Indicators would have really pi55ed you off though..

As per what the guys said on top - tow hook cover.

Cost wise - $13.68 + GST from Toyota

Part number: 5212812902

It comes unpainted.

Don't know if it is still true, the last time I checked the insurance stats, Corolla have one the highest rate of the theft :ph34r: leading to slightly higher insurance premium.

there's an illegal use for pretty much everything :ph34r: I have one from a truck but it's about 3mm too small but for $13 I should just get a new one, silver paint, drill through the guts and ready for a tow hook, if I get one..
