Anyone know if front rubber bumper has any vertical adjustment? Used to fit fine. Now refitted it seems high compared to the bonnet. Difficult to get fingers under to press the release catch.

Yes, there are large shims and some adjustment between the car and the two main brackets on the bumper.

Doesn’t that move farther away from the mount? There may be some play in the mount hole, but if you have the nuts loose, the bumper should be at the lowest point just sitting there

Correct, there should be some wriggle around the mount holes or the holes could be enlarged.
