Default Question for those that had rusty bumper replaced

Does the dealer just scrap the old bumper or do they have to send them back into Chrysler?

It took a year, but the dealer finally agreed to replace my rusty rear bumper. It will be in by the end of the week. However, in a great sense of irony, I was just rear ended/bumped over the weekend while out of town in a parking lot by a hispanic guy with no insurance, no money, no license, and no english (needless to say...this new bumper is now my responsibility ) There is just a dent in the corner of my bumper...no other damage.

If the dealer just scraps the old bumper...then this is no-harm no-foul for them to help me. If they need to send it back to Chrysler though...then clearly I will be getting out my credit card.

That sucks, this is a perfect example why other states should follow after Arizona. Im sure he spoke and understood English well, just wanted to play dumb.

I would imagine they are scrapped, probably snap a picture for proof so they get the warranty credit. Since rust is a chemical reaction and is irreversible there is no way they can recondition the bumper for resale or reuse.

Just my $.02

Dealers are supposed to scrap any bumpers that are removed. I say this from experience.
