Drill a hole completely thru the bumper and cap and drop a rod or bolt down thru it.

I replaced my lost bumper caps with this type and 18 months later I haven't lost one yet. One per package.

I lost the original caps on the way home from the PDI.

I guess I have just been lucky. The OEM plugs stay tight and in place.

I just drilled a hole top and bottom then put a pin in. Used wire and made a "L" with just a little bend at the bottom to hold it in.


You can use the end caps on the brown and yellow hose to crate a seal and compress the hose. It won't hold forever but it will help putting it way. I put a chain link between the two end caps (the ones you can drill through without compromising the vacuum) and now you can pull on one and get the other out also, that with the compression I can fit both those and 1 of the Red style hoses.
