Default Front Bumper replacement?

So I had a fender bender with the ol' Cruiser this weekend. There was some damage to the internals but they're being fixed as I write this. The only cosmetic damage is to the bumper cover on the front of the vehicle. I can't seem to find one that actually looks like the bumper cover I have on mine. See some of my previous pics to see what I mean.

Most likely got torn off. So the tabs are most certainly pulled off. So If thinking you need to replace it. Best I can do with the info you gave us on the pt. Pictures would be better. Not sure the answer would be different.

Uhhhhhhhh

It came off as it was parked????came off while being driven???

Is it off detached completely? Is it hanging down in the front?

Was there an impact that caused this?

Your statement is very vague and you don't provide a picture and then you ask for help based on very little information given?

Amazing

First, welcome to the forum from the great soverign state of Arkansas!

About six years ago, my son was driving my wife's Corolla Sport when he ran over a pile of bricks. Yes, a pile of bricks.

It knocked off much of the front bumper cover. But with some very strong expoxy glue, a drill, some small screws, nuts and fenders washers, I was able to put the whole thing back on the car. And after a little buffing, I could not even tell there had ever been a problem. And it all looks perfect today. It's my daughter's car now.

If you are handy, you might see if you can do something like this. A lot of the time, only the tabs get ripped off. And those usually don't show. So they can sometime be glued. You might try gluing a metal washer on the tabs in the place where the holes used to be. If the original retainiers will no longer work, try some small bolts and nuts. With time, you might get the bumper cover put back on the car without a lot of expense.
