Anyone else notice if they push inward against the front bumper it's loose and squeaks? Is your grille loose also...like if you tap on it does it rattle in it's frame?

Thanks....I know this is a lot to ask, and sounds strange but if anyone gets around to it, please stand in front and push inward on the front bumper (as in toward to motor). Mine sounds like it'll fall of with loud obnoxious squeaking. All the connections appear tight as far as I can tell.

The front cover is a "cover".
It's held in place by several clips and fasteners but some movement is normal.
If you have any rattling noises while driving get it addressed.
If you are concerned that it makes noise when you stand in front of the car and push on it.... well I can't really help you there.

yeah, like ewill3rd said....it definitely loose, moves all over the place, but given that mine doesn't squeek. stop pushing on it ;)

Thanks for the input....I'm taking it that they do tend to be somewhat loose and I should just chill with the pushing. Yeah, thought of that and no, it doesn't rattle while driving. While polishing it does and I then to obsess....I figured if it's normal to be loose to allow movement then I can deal with it. If it's only mine, that'd be different.

I know it's kind of wierd but it is normal.
The rear bumper will do the same if you push or lift on it.
They are just covers. The bumper bar underneath is quite sturdy.
