Newbie Needs some Patient Help w/ bumper!

Okay guys....got my first one about a month ago & being new to the area, I'm still getting adjusted to all the potholes after all the rain & BAM!....hit one & got out the car & noticed the driver's side front bumper hanging lower than normal.

Now that it's dark out, I can't really tell if there's a clip or something that fell only that it's not as smooth looking when I bought it. I'l be able 2 take some pix 2 show better what I'm dealing with because it's NOT totally off just hanging off a little under the parking light. I'm off all this week & been doing some searching about fixing this fallen bumper but nothing. Any help or links are definitely appreci8d.

Be patient w/me please if this is an easy fix. Like I said...been driving domestic all my life & I found a new-fond fondness 4 these babies & need some expert advice. If any1 has the time & wanna help too....you'll be my hero! Lol! Thanks a million!

Likely the groove of the inside of the bumper has come off the tongue (white plastic) mounted to the car. Could be an easy fix if the tongue clip didn't break.

Check out realoem.com, and look at the diagrams to see how it is mounted.

Good Luck.
