Hope I could get some help identifying this panel that is damaged. I was looking at fenders but does not look like what I need to replace. The panel is to the right of the front bumper with the damage. Also if anyone knows the name of the white piece that clips the front bumper. Any help would be so appreciated. Thank you.

The white piece is front bumper mounting bracket and you need to buy bracket along with metal rivets. (Oops, in US that seems to be a retainer)

The metal part is fender itself.

I suggest if you look for GM service centre or local garage before placing order.

I hope the vertical part of bumper, which fits on retainer, is saved as that is connected/moulded to rest of bumper with very thin, it's just 1mm, I guess.

I am still facing the alignment issue as same place is broken in my car, after one van pulled bumper (inside support, liner and resonator) with its (illegal) bullbar, I can't see that happening as for me it's passenger side.:banghead:

Wow thanks so much, I really appreciate all the info. I noticed those rivets, it was a bit concerning since I was planning on taking on the repair my self. Maybe hot glue gun is in order. Thank you :)

I guess you can still do that at own, if you have right tool. Hot glue gun is sceptical as that part is taking much load.

The plastic part is torn into two and need replacement. As I remember, that is held by a screw and 2 rivets. I understand rivets are used to avoid any alignment issue. So if you have tool to apply these rivets, it's a easy job. The rivets are like this:images.jpg

After pushing into hole the rod is pulled by tool.

The metal part too got good amount of damage. As I think it is held by some bolts and that holds wheel well liner with plastic rivets, those are easy to remove with prying tool.

Rivets shouldnt make you afraid of doing the job, they are not any harder to do than screws. A rivet tool is about $25-30, and you just need a metal drill bit to drill the old ones out.
