Well ours is a little different. We sort of sideswiped a jeep in Florida and just creased the bottom of the radiator shroud. That little bit of stress caused the front tab to break. I noticed it when the turbo hose blew and we were laid over in Heyburn, ID for 4 days. I took two large cable tie wraps and put it back together with those and it's been that was since.
Looks bad, but it works. Now that I have seen the re-fabrication I know how I will fix mine. But I think I am going to use a large flat washer as a spacer so my Bolt can go through it, and if I need to get into that area again, all I would have to do is remove the bolt and swing the bracket out of the way.
Great Idea on re-engineering this poor design.
