    Hi guys,

    My girlfriends sister managed to have a minor collision with a deer when driving home late last night. She's been very lucky, but we now find ourselves in a position where we need to fix or bodge what we can at home for the time being.

    Looking at the damage, it looks like the front grille took the brunt of it and the central badge in the grill is missing. Looks like we can get a second hand replacement one of these off ebay without too much trouble. However is it easy to fit or is it a bumper off job?

    Also, what the heck is that white module floating around infront of the radiator?? Looks like that would have been attached to the rear of the emblem, I'll cable tie that to the busted grill for now so she can get to where she's going.

    The bumper does have some crazing in the paint where it has flexed and a larger crack, but very minor. It has however been knocked off its fixings taking with it the drivers side headlight and popping off the arch liner, hopefully I can pop this all back into place but again, I have no idea whether Merc will have made this as simple as that.
