Question cracked front bumper CLK430

Another bumper too close to the split underneath, but now the crack seems to be traveling. It is still underneath and cannot be there a way to bond it or repair it with epoxy and how do I do it?

I think you need to clamp where it splits so the splitting stops traveling. Use a 2-part epoxy that mixes, spread it generously over the crack on the cleaned inside. So it's clamp and glue.

I believe that you can stop a crack spreading in plastic by drilling a small hole at the far end. Then do your bonding.
