I just got into my first accident ever. Re-ended someone thanks to sun glarr. I was wondering what is the black bar between the bumper and the radiator on a 1997 Dodge intrepid. All the damage was the hood end being pushed in slightly, still latches and the brackets for lights being broken. No chipped paint. I did notice though that the black bar behind the bumper was pushed in and had split half way or so, looks like it might have pushed in against the radiator about in the middle but did not see any leaks thought the smaller radiator like device that was against/inside of it did seem to be bent, has 2 pipes going in and one that comes out then bends back in like a U on the other end. What part is that?. Does it support the bumper and can I get it replaced? Could the bar be the front bumper reinforcement bar?
