Hi, has anyone come across a fault like the image attached with rear bumper (specifically above the wheel arch). Pretty sure it’s not been bumped and looks more like a swelling/fold to me. Can anyone advise further? Will VW look at this under warranty?

Hi there,
For reference, here's how ETKA describes the rear bumper:
4922


The exact part code depends on what electronics you have in the bumper (parking assist sensors, etc.). However, primed bumpers appear to be in the region of £200 (e.g. non-assist version and park-assist version). May strike lucky on sites like ebay, although nothing came up with a quick search. #11 (above) is the part described as 'wheel cover', which appears to be the affected item from your photo, so you may also be able to get away with just replacing that part at ~£21 (e.g. Wheel cover satin black). Labour + painting on top of all prices, of course.

Unless you are claiming through your insurance I wouldnt be changing the bumper, a localised repair and paint will sort that fairly easily.
