I’ve owned my 2002 Suzuki xl7 for almost 2 years now and its been great. I have, what appears to be a factory front push bar of some sort and I cannot find a single picture of another 1st Gen xl7 with the same piece.

The reason I’m so concerned now is because a delivery truck just caught the side of it and ripped it off and broke it. I’m trying to get an idea of what a piece like that would cost to give it to the driver/company, but I need to know exactly what I’m looking at. I hope someone can help identify the piece.

If I were at home I could get you the name & part number, but it would do you much good - they are no longer available from Suzuki

I would still appreciate it! Even if the part isn’t available anymore it still has me curious now. Am I just not seeing it on any other xl7 online or in person because it’s ugly and no one wants it? Was it an option only in a certain regional market or factory package ? I was originally going to remove it but it grew on me.

It was a dealer fit option that was not particularly popular - I suspect one possible cause is that folks figured out it was near useless as a push/nudge bar.

Sort of what I figured. It is useless for sure. It doesn’t appear to weigh much and I think it looks pretty cool. I might end up fixing it depending on what the body shop says.

is it listed or classified as a nudge/push bar ?

imho - I think the truck driver did you a favour. It looks better without it.

Well that’s fine if you think that. I might even leave it off. But the fact of the matter is the truck driver needs to pay for whatever the damage is he caused and I’m asking around to see if it was a dealer fit option, how much they were, and if they still made them. I got two of the answers. I already know the body shop is going to tell me they can’t get that part in or fix the piece that’s broken

Hope you can find a replacement. Maybe one that's more than plastic! That would be sweet.
Thank you! Not too hopefully in finding a new one. I might try to fix this one with some reinforcements but we will see! She might just be rocking without it

I agree the truck driver should pay - did they not offer anything to keep it out of an insurance claim?

Yup I talked to them and will be taking my vehicle in for a few quotes and get back to them. Should any funny business come from it, I caught it on camera!

I was just hoping someone had a part number or rough idea what the piece costed new, just for my sake incase a body shop tried to undervalue it

go see a fibreglass specialist and see if he can quote for a repair, or replacement

2 years late, I know, but the item number for the bull bar is 99000-990YB-755, in case anyone should need it.

The (south american?) brochure I found on the internet shows a Chevrolet Grand Vitara - I didn’t know that combination existed - but my (Dutch) Suzuki brochure shows the same item number.
