uggggh i dont wana bring my car in the garage and rip it apart.
but if i have to i will. when i took my headlight and took the headlight bracket out i looked to the left. on the inner of the wheel well. there was one 10mm bolt. i unscrewed it and this piece that the bolt screwed into fell. its the same silver piece that holds the bottom of the headlight bracket together. than this long piece that is prolly 7 or8 inches detatched after i took the bolt off. that piece you can see in the picture. thats why my fender can be pulled back like that. i need another bracket and bolt to put on the top of that long bracket or w.e it is that fell to secure my fender

i hope this helps

thats the long piece im talking to that is held in by the bolt and the bracket to the bumper on the inside of the wheel well.
i need another headlight bracket like thing and a bolt to secure it to the bumper as theres only one holding it to the car as on the driver side there is 2.

you slide that bracket piece on to the bracket i have pictured and you bolt it to the bumper im pretty sure. because thats how its held on now.
id have to take my driver side apart and see how many bolts are attatched to the long bracket.

maby something slides back into place and i dont even need a bolt.? but looking at the driver side you can tell theres a bracket and a bolt right where i have the arow because you can see it when you look at the corner of the headlight. the other bracket and bolt is lower down at the end of the long bracket.

the bumper snaps back into place

and #3 and 4 i believe is refering to the screw and the object the screw screws into on the head light bracket

yeah but thats the same exact thing that holds that long bracket to the bumper.
it looks like on my driver side there is #3 and #4 on the top as i can see if i look thru the gap on the corner of my headlight.

so does the first square thing on the bumper snap into the piece arowed on the bracket? or is it held by the screw? on my driver side it looks like its held by the screw because i can see it

Dude. You need 1 bolt and 1 clip. Take 1 of each from your headlight bracket and use that. Your not gonna lose or misalign the light beam
