Lower grill (fog light)

The other day while in a parking lot, my sister got out of the car, slammed the door really hard, and then the lower right fog light grill thing fell of. Luckily a guy in the parking lot saw it and told me it had fallen off, otherwise i would've drove off without it, but now i cant get it on. Any tips?

Ya i guess, but there is a tab inside that gap where it should go and its supposed to clip in, and does after pushing really hard but then it just pops back out. The tab on the grill is a bit bent maybe thats why...

Just pop it in. Maybe dab a bit of krazy glue on the left side closer to the center so it holds onto the center grill.

Just glue it if the tab is broken, or buy a new one. It's okay. My friend once slammed my back door so hard that the car stopped sensing when it was open. Couldn't be bothered to fix it. Then it was totaled. Her fault... All of it!

I can relate.
Us with coupes, when people hold/push the glass to close the door, I literally scream at them.
