1996
Chrysler
Sebring convertible JXI
2.5L V6 engine

My friend was in a fender bender he rear ended a another car. The front is smashed the radiator is pushed in the battery box is rubbing on the tire. There is a metal beam in front of the radiator that snapped and pushed in the radiator. The only info I can find on this part is 491A056. Its bolted onto the front. Is it a bumper support. If We ran the car without a bumper is it needed. If needed what is it called and whats the right part number cause I can't find any info on it. It needs a new radiator new windshield new airbages. We just need to get it to a drivable condition. it still runs and drives water pours out of the radiator and the battery box rubs on the tire. We had to remove the front bumper has was rubbing on the tires.

Not an auto body tech nor appraiser but that car is totalled. You can still get some bucks from a salvage yard and if you loved that exact car start looking for another. Even if you had free parts that would still be a tough fix. No telling what other things would crop up after that trauma either. My opinion,

Your frame is bent. It would take a frame shop to use hydraulics to straighten if out and the cost to repair this would exceed what your car is worth. Time to go car shopping.
