The ZZPerformance front bumper quick release kit for your Cobalt is a simple solution for the problems all of us enthusiasts face. As these cars are not getting any younger, we saw more and more bumper problems and annoyances, so we designed a product to not only fix problems, but also improve on the OEM design with an efficient race-inspired quick latch.
As you probably already know, the cobalt bumper to fender attachment has notoriously brittle plastic clips that often snap with a single bumper removal, or just vibration and age. The plastic bumper also gets torn up by poor installation/removal technique and the tricky bolts hidden under the fender liner. It is rare for us to see a bumper with the provision for that bolt in tact, as well as the hardware not stripped or rusted in place. With this kit you can remove whatever parts of the OEM system are left on you car, and fully replace with this upgrade.
As a car enthusiast, removing your front bumper is unavoidable. Whether it is to do some maintenance, add some mods, or aesthetic mods such as messing with your front lights/ fog light, or load a very low car onto a trailer or steep ramp, it will be coming off at least a few times in most cases. The OEM tab system was not designed to be reused, and is stressful and annoying to do so. This kit makes removing the bumper a breeze, just four simple push-button style quick releases that allow you to slide the bumper right off without any tools (or only a few if you retain the factory style fender liners and undertray). We find ourselves pulling bumpers off our race cars almost every event, even if it isn’t necessary it’s often much less headache to work around if you can pop off the bumper in a matter of seconds.
The double latch design keeps the bumper contoured to the fender perfectly, allowing you to easily get a better-than-factory bumper to fender gap, and keeping it that way. We see single clip designs often fit poorly, or wobble under wind and age. The brackets also have three dimensional variance built into them so fine tuning your fitment is easy and always tunable.
