    probably will just clip back into place

    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

    Do you have parking sensors on that bumper ?

    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.

    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

    Thanks if I were to get to tell insurance and get it repaired myself I am guessing they would not accept the claim

    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.
