    I had a slight disagreement with a fixed object, knocking the tabs on the front fascia loose. I tried pressing it back in, but it appears the tabs are slightly more sophisticated and I'm not sure how to get these hooked back up. Any help?

    Normally thr bumper has a 3/8 head bolt that points up,where it meets the fender. The slots in the bumper are supposed to hook over the tabs mounded on the body, under the bumper. So I would remove the bolt and line the bumper up, give it a firm wack with your palm. It should go back in as lond as the bumper is not distorted.

    Bolt go's back in place once the bumper is back on. It looks like your bumper needs to move to the passenger side before the bumper will go back in.
