Should there be a insert under the bumper?

Post by Redway87 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 12:15 pm

Hi

Whilst giving the T-Roc a clean I noticed a large aperture in the underside of the rear bumper below the number plate and I am wondering if this should have an insert fitted to seal from water / debris entering.

Just been to look at ours. I'm assuming rear bumper, then yes ours has a hole. Maybe for either air flow or preparation for tow bar?
