Bumper Overriders ... Is there a difference between fronts and rears?

Post  Cupcake on Tue Jan 29, 2013 11:38 pm

Hi all.
I'm looking to purchase some replacement overriders for my gorgeous girl, but have been alerted to the fact that there may be a difference between ones fitted at the front to the ones fitted to the rear.
Is this correct?
I desperately need a pair for the rear - What differences am I looking for to know which ones fit which end?
Thanks everyone!

Somerford Minis catalogue gives the same part number for both.Will struggle to compare mine as I have two on the rear bumper and a number of loose ones that are of unknown origin that havent yet been tried on the front bumper.

I've always been of the belief that they are different, but can't remember what the difference is.

I managed to buy four of the last of the remanufactured overiders. They were all the same and seemed to fit ok.
The bumpers are of the same profile so should not be a problem.

BTW Alex it was nice to speak to you and Suzy on Sunday at Bingley. Very Happy
Humph. The same for you Very Happy

Somerford did advertise these over riders a while back, I wonder if they have any left?

I've just checked my (NOS) parts list and it appears that the overriders are the same front and rear.

That opens up a few possibilities as I have loads of fronts but no rears...

Wait, are you sure you haven't loads of rears and no fronts?

Well if you have an overabundance of overriders, I'd be happy to take a few off your hands.

I "bought" a pair off a guy on the EH Fakebook page. Looks like I'm out that money, as it's been months and no overriders appearing. So I guess I'm looking for some more for my 'alf-an-Elf trailer.
