HELP! Daughter's car rear panel below tail light

2058 Views 13 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  DEVOURS
My daughter is just here for weekend and asked me to help with small problem. But I know nothing about these cars.

She had a small accident a while ago that broke the driver side tailight. She had a mechanic replace the light, but the panel below is now not locked into place. Quite possible some clip may be broken?

Any advice on how to remove that piece and see what is wrong?

ADDED: I had a closer look. It looks like there are clips that hold that piece in under the taillight. Lowere ones are there, but upper ones are not. Must have been broken off in accident. So waht has to be done - replace the whole bumper cover? Or do shops have a way of repairing the clip area?

The rear light should come off fairly easily. Maybe the Tabs for the clips on the skin are still there. Being optimistic lol.
I'd have a body shop plastic weld or epoxy tabs on (or make new tabs), for a nice thorough repair (short of a new skin, lol).
