Default Lower bumper popped out...where to take it?

So, at the grocery store last night when I went to leave....meant to put it in reverse and instead I went forward....over a parking lot medium.

Bottom driver side bumper popped out. I can't quite get it in (more afraid to mess with it).

Where do you recommend I take it? Dealership or an auto body place?

I doubt it's much more than just popping it back into place but I have neither the experience nor the ***** to mess with it.

Thanks

Is it popped out in this area?


If so, then it does just snap back in.

Yep, that exact area, just opposite side.

I'll take it to the dealership. I'm sure they have dealt with this before

Thanks

I bumped the wall of my garage and the same thing happened. It should pop back in.

Yeah just pops back in. Most cars are like that now. When I got my Boss it was actually in too far and I had to pull it out a little.

I went to my local FORD dealership (not the one where I bought my car from mind you) and they were too backed up to help. Not impressed with that particular dealerships service. I've gone there a couple times and they aren't terribly friendly or responsive, but whatever.

I popped it back in myself. There is a MINOR "pokeage" sticking out but it's hardly noticeable.

I understand, acctingman. Thank you for the update.
