what's behind the front bumper 2016 SEL- Nav 2.0 Petrol?
« on: December 16, 2021, 03:53:24 PM »
I recently had my 2016 SEL Nav 2.0 Petrol's front bumper repainted. I then noticed that there was only car bodywork behind the lowest grille, as the bodywork was now red due to overspray. Most other Mazda3s of that age have what looks like a radiator grille right up behind the black insert. But on Youtube videos and your Bumper Removal pdf here, only bodywork is visible, like mine. Any ideas? The bodyshop swear they took nothing off!
