Hood to Bumper Fitment


Recommended Posts

I just completed a 3rd radiator mod to MY 2003 996. My hood sits about 3-4 mm below the edge of the bumper. Is this normal, or should the edge be even with the bumper edge?

I forgot to note the Fitment before I removed the bumper. The bumper seems to fit ok, and I don't see how it can be adjusted to raise it up.

Thanks!

The front bumper/spoiler should be a mm or two above the front hood. This can be adjusted using the screws under the front hood along with loosening the screws at the fender wells.

The idea is to direct the air flow over the hood - and not get caught at the lip of the hood. If the hood is too high you will get wind noise and potentially high speed handling issues.

Sometimes it is best to have another person hold the bumper at the proper position while you tighten down the screws.

Loren, are you talking about the two screws on top of the bumper? I have already tried loosening the screws under the side markers and hidden screw, and the smallest height that I was able to achieve is the bumper being 3-4 mm higher than the hood lip. I was trying to get the bumper edge even with the hood lip. I am not sure if it was this way before I removed the bumper.

Thanks!
