No problem. Checked my wife's this morning. Looks like the plastic retainer that holds the trunk lid stop snapped and the rear, upper plastic retainer slid out of the slot on the bumper cover (that's causing the gap between the cover and quarter panel). Not too bad and appears to be easy to fix. Just so you know the plastic retainers on the trunk lid stops are not screws. The center slides out of the outer part. Just a small screwdriver to pry the center part out. The ones on the wheel well look like they will have to be replaced. They have the three prongs on the inner side of the wheel well and bumper cover holes. Good luck with your fix.

Had to mess with mine after getting hit by a motorcycle. Here's some pix.

Here's the pin and bolt hole on the body. The service manual says there are 2
pins here but I had a pin and a bolt. I was it hit here once prior and this could
have been part of the repair. I needed to use a rubber mallet and wood block
to get the panel flat again. When I was hit it bent it a little so when I 1st tightened
the bolt it actually made the gap worse





Here's the Bumper. You can see the 2 slots for the pin and bolt.


I accessed the bolt through the trunk. I'd check here 1st to see if you have one.
Like I said the LX service manual says it's 2 of those pins in the 1st picture. You
can also see the holes on the body where the other 3 bumper pins go.

There should be 2 push pins and one screw & nut. There are three attachment points on the side, and (3) underside of the quarter panel.

As you can see the last 2 pins are guides as the fascia slides on/off, and is retained in place with the screw and nut. You can try two new push pins to see if it will tighten up.

I Just Looked

DOES THIS CLIP/PIN


LOOK LIKE THIS ONE ON THE INSIDE FROM THE TRUNK?

AND IF SO HOW DO I GO ABOUT TIGHTING IT? THIS SEEMS TO BE WHERE THE GAP IS BETWEEN THE BUMPER COVER AND THE 1/4 PANEL AND I HAVE 2 CLIPS/PINS AND NO BOLTS?? THE ABOVE PICS IS WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE........

ARE THESE 3 PINS REUSEABLE ONCE I TAKE THEM OUT OR WILL THEY NEED TO BE REPLACED AND WHAT TOOL SHOULD I USE TO REMOVE THESE WITHOUT MUCH DAMAGE AS POSSIBLE?? IM TRYING TO ACCESS THIS PART BECAUSE I WANT TO TIGHTEN THE CLIPS/PINS THAT HOLD IT TOGETHER IN THE 1ST AND 2ND PICS... THANKS..........:cool: I APPRECIATE ALL THE HELP!!!!:cool:

That's the thing with those, you can't really tighten them. You can buy
new ones though and they should sit tighter.

The ones in your fender well look like the rivets that you have to cut and
replace, mine where the kind where you could pull the center pin, kinda
like the ones by the trunk lid.

I forgot about the bolt in your first attachment, you get to that one from
the fender well though, it holds the bumper to the inside fender lining.
Like I said mine had been previously repaired so I didn't have 2 pins like
mentioned in LX SM. My Bumper would not just pull off. I had the one pin
you can see in the picture and 1 bolt that went in that hole you can see and it
screwed into my bumper cover. Guess the body shop I took it to improvised.
The weird thing is it's that way on the other side where they didn't have to
fix anything so I wasn't sure if it was only like this on my car or not.

I would try new ones. Just go the dealer.
Yeah the dealer should stock all of those. But the ones you showed in
the picture are actually interior push pins, they hold the door panels on.

Don't know the part # since I re used mine. If your going to go with
bolts your going to need the something to screw it into. The body shop
put a small plate with a threaded hole on the bumper where the rear
pin would have been.

You can't re use them. You should be able to up a handful at the
dealership or use the christmas tree style from an auto parts store.

Actually kinda shocked you were able to get them out like that, I had to
cut mine.
