So Uneven!!!

So its been about a year since I rear ended a CRX on the freeway and brought it in to the local body shop, family friend owns it, and they replaced my front bumper cover, my headlight, headlight bracket, absorber, and the impact bar. I was satisfied from their work, they also de-badged my car and painted the bowtie black, they just painted over the bowtie, no sanding or anything.....anyways about a week ago i go out to change my bulbs to silverstar and I look and both brackets to the impact bar are still messed out I measured them and they dont match up and the bumper is uneven with the headlights. I wanna know how easy it is to replace the brackets since they're just bolted on, OR if I should call the shop and make them replace the brackets, and repaint my bowtie the right way because its starting to peel, idk what im gunna do.........

Any info would be great


Mike

I don't know. I bought my Cobalt brand new and I have never been in any accidents, but for some reasons the headlights look like crap, they don't line up properly with the bumper. A lot of owners complain about the headlights, some have even taken their cars back to the dealer thinking it is a manufacturer problem and that is just the way they are. However, yes take it back and see if it can be fixed.

you can just adjust them yourself, I know, it sucks but its a cheap car. Just undo the bracket and move around. I gotta do that to my projectors, after I put them back in after aiming the lights they were too close.
