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

nah man everything is there dude, i can see the bracket myself, its bolted to the fender. if i remember correctly from when i was doing my bumperswap, your gonna have to install the bracket on the bumper and then bolt it up to the fender.

there are no clips on that bracket at alll

tyeah there is 2 sets of the clips and bolts. i need 1 clip and one bolt hold it to the bumper. because i loosened it the one set when i took it off to see if it loosened the bumper any bit so i could get the silencer off.
i looked on my driver side well thru the healight since i didnt unbolt it and that clip and bolt is right on the top which is isnt on my passanger side. theres only a bolt and clip holding that bracket on which is on the bottom of the bracket. i need a clip and bolt to hold the top of the bracket to the fender

yeah maby thats what im refering to.a bracket. the piece that you screw the bolt into. because on that long bracket piece that holds the fender thats in the picture its held in by the piece w.e its called in the headlight diagram. its a 10 mm bolt that screws into a small silver piece. thats what im missing if im correct. because as of now there is only one holding that piece in and i need another one for the top bc i can see on my driver side the piece on the top since i cant pull my fender out like i can on the driver side.
