probably will just clip back into place
#2
should push back on if not damaged. but check for missing clips etc .
look on u tube for how to remove your bumper then do the opposite to put it back
#3
Do you have parking sensors on that bumper ?
#4
Thanks guys I believe one or two of the clips are broken will a repairer be able to get new clips or will I need a new bumper
#5
No parking sensors on the bumper
#6
be able to replace clips
#7
thanks I asked one person and they told me to claim through insurance for a new bumper and respray but the bumper already has scuffs on it and only a little bit of paint transfer from the car that hit me so I thought it was not worth claiming.
#8
I work in a spray shop, claiming through insurance will put the premium up for probably the next 5 years so may cost you more in the long run. Get a quote from a local place, paint transfer can often just be polished off
#9
Thanks if I were to get to tell insurance and get it repaired myself I am guessing they would not accept the claim
#10
look for a clay bar on ebay , that will remove paint transfer very easy

​Don't bother and repair and respray is approx £150 - £200. Your excess and 5 year insurance hike will hammer you far more than that.

Thank you so much guys

You DIY by wiping off the other cars paint with a cloth and a bit of brake fluid. Just wipe it continuously and the other cars paint will gradually disappear.
