I loaned my 2008 Explorer out the other day, and it came back with the front bumper misaligned after a 2 mph mishap. Any idea what I need to do to make it look pretty again? Passenger side now has a 1/2" gap and driver side is at correct gap width.

Thanks,

Tom

After investigation, I found there is no adjustment for a drooping bumper. A replacement plastic clip is the only fix. Other than the $3 entry fee to the local pick and pull, and the time to figure out how to remove the replacement clip without breaking it, this was a free fix.

I found a replacement on Ebay so hopefully others can get their bumper covers up to spec without spending hours at the pick and pull. The driver side support should be a similar part number, although I did see some auctions with the brackets being sold in pairs.

Interesting. I just looked at mine and I can see the bracket. Was your old one actually broken?
