    Mercedes CLA rear bumper disaster

    So I purchased a Mercedes CLA AMG last week off a private seller a week later I noticed a rattle that comes and goes from the rear left of the car. Its really starting to bother me and I dont want to take it to mercedes to pay £££ for a simple repair. Ive taken a look under the rear bumper and seen that its loose anybody have any idea what the diffuser fits on to? It seems like the previous owner had a bad repair job and something is missing beneath the bumper when I tap the undertray it feels loose.

    Thanks!

    That looks about the same as a new car ... you may have something else (unseen) that is rattling, like a loose connector, port plug, or blind nut.
    BTW -- even with a brand new CLA ... when you tap those pieces as shown on your picture ... that all "rattle" due to the way they are assembled.

    Umm that bumper clearly doesn't look right to me. All the plastic clips/screws/fasteners are missing. Did the car have a clean car fax?

    Those empty holes on the lower section are there even for new cars ... might be process / painting lugs

    You are missing support bar, your diffuser should be fastened to this support bar. See you official dealer to fix this. By the way.. nicely parked.

    @Capt Torch Do have a picture of this support bar? I bought mine brand new with 11miles on it and mine looks the same.
