Repair suggestions pass rear bumper dislodged

Anyone have any suggestions or analysis as to how to fix this? Carfax is clean, no paint transfer, supposed to be the original paint job, and no physical signs of collision with anything other than that the passenger side rear bumper is about a quarter of an inch separated from the fender.

My only thought is maybe the previous owner removed the bumper and didn't do the best job re installing it, or some kind of natural cause for separation.

Any ideas how to best remedy this? Is it as simple and tightening some brackets? Thanks!

On my 10GT I sometimes see that it pops out a bit but all I do is push it in and it goes back to normal. Never thought why it did it but it must be the way the bumper is installed. It seems like it can clip in and clip out because of how easy and can pop it in. It could b when I go up driveways a little fast who knows. Ur separation seems a little bigger than what I'm talking about tho

I haven't played with my bumper yet, just no time but thats the general notion i am feeling. Maybe mine has just been left detached for longer and with time sun and the sheer vibration we all knows theres enough of, you have mine. Funny thing is i almost bought an 06 gt, and same location same problem but it actually had separated out on both axis, same story with a clean car fax and no paint transfer.

That kind of depresses me. But I am truthfully not worried about it. But I am one, a Marine, and attention to detail to me is always paramount and usually I take it over board, and also, this is my baby!!

But I suppose I will take solace knowing this isnt major, its if anything, common. and probably, at least, simple enough to remedy.

Clean car-fax just means nothing has been reported on the car. I'm not saying you've got one that was wrecked but it could have easily been repaired off the radar of insurance or police reports. Especially if it was a minor rear bumper repair. Easy enough to swap a rear bumper and get it painted, especially I someone has friends in the repair business.

I'd look up a manual that shows the mounting points for the rear bumper then see it yours is snug at those points and that the hardware is all there and straight. Maybe you can tighten that gap up a bit.

Good luck!
