Had an accident the other day. An oncoming car tried to turn right in front of me on a wet road. Shocked


Will need at least a bumper, front grille, fog lights, headlights, indicators, sidelights, wide wheel arch trim. Sad

Nothing vital damaged, still drives okay but can't use it without working headlights.

I am anticipating that the insurance company's approved repairer will have trouble finding the parts, so I want to have an answer ready.

Is there any company in the UK that can source these parts? Does anybody know whether Mitsu UK can order the parts from Japan?

It a 2003 chamonix 7 seater with double fog lights in the bumper. I can't even find a listing for that bumper on the russian parts site.

Shame  Sad

I have some double fog lights somewhere in my garage if it helps.

Mitsu can order in the OEM parts, but not the wide wheel trim.

You can also try other breakers mentioned in the Garage /servicing forum, such as MitzyBits, in Rotherham, for 2nd hand parts.

The insurance company strung me along for six weeks telling me that they had authorised the repairs and were going to fix it. But then they decided it was too difficult and time consuming to get the parts. So they've declared it a category N total loss.

So now I've got the car back (with all the fuel missing Shocked ), still damaged, and some money to fix it myself. Now have to make the effort to find the parts and get it fixed before it turns into a garden shed.

Anyway, when this happened about two months ago, there was a breaker on ebay with a white car that had the same front end as mine, with the double fog lights in the lower bumper. I've looked and looked but I can't find it now. Does anybody know where that breaker is and whether they still have that car?

I've been looking at the online parts catalog. There are about five different front bumpers shown, but not the one I have. I guess mitsubishi would probably be able to find the part from the chassis number. Or maybe when I pull it apart there will be a part numbers on it somewhere.

You can buy it back off the insurance company and fix it yourself. Hopefully they will pay you out a reasonable amount.
