Bumper Clips

so i was atempting to take the silencer from
my stock airbox out of my car and only got the front bolt out and the rear clip broke but i cant get it out so i unbolted a bolt from the inside near the side of the bumper off and it had a plastic piece conected to it. i couldnt get the silencer out still so i put everything back together. im pretty sure im missing 2 clips and 2 bolts to that plastic piece to hold the bumper tight. i can pull my bumper from
the corner of the headlight and it looks like this


where do i buy the clips and or bolts so its secured properly. i looked on my driver side and the top has the bolt and little clip you screw the bolt into. the same thing that holds the bottom 2 bolts of the headlight bracket in place

who can help??

Three options: first is to go get them from the dealer. Second is to check local salvage yards. Third is to check parts stores, check the other side to see what you need to buy.

You're not missing anything. The bracket is there. I believe I can see it.

The bumper will just snap back in place. There are 2 bolts that hold that "clip/bracket" in place.

The best thing to do is takeoff one bolt and clip from each headlight bracket and use those. They're the same
