    Super light/slow hit a deer, minor damage. The driving light did not break but popped out of the hole in the bumper. Don't know how it "snaps" back in. Is there a diagram someone could show me? Thanks

    It's bow season in Pa. I think, I'm not a hunter, so all the deer are spooked for awhile

    Check out this video, it’s pretty helpful:


    I had to repair mine last weekend after my elderly neighbor backed into my bumper. Also had to replace a broken plastic mount piece. It’s hard to tell what may have cracked until you get in there. Fortunately removing the grill and bumper is not too hard.

    Video clip is exactly what I was looking for, feel foolish for not checking YouTube first, look up just about anything there, what a great tool for any job imaginable. That's again, gonna get after it right now

    How did it go? I'm curious if you found any hidden damage or were just able to pop it back into place.

    On mine the fog light mounting bracket was broken. I took a small piece of pipe hanging strap, cut and bent it to shape and then epoxied it into place.

    Also had to buy a bumper bracket since mine was cracked:

    I spent only about $20 to fix it, but probably three hours of my time, thanks to my neighbor. But at least nothing expensive was broken.
