Hey Guys , need a little help with the bumper(PICS)

Hey maybe someone can offer some insight. This morning on my way to work I noticed something weird on my front bumper. The chrome fascia(?) wasn't flush against the black bumper it was sticking out a bit. I tried pushing it back in with no luck. I have no idea how it happened. But I see the tabs on the black bumper that need to hook in to the chrome fascia holes. I tried lifting and pushing but I don't wanna damage those tabs ? Is there an easy way to do this it would I have to have the bumper removed? It's on the left side of the license plate

Congo, just saw your thread and funny thing is I had the exact same thing happen with the chrome insert. Did you figure out how to get the 2 tabs on the chrome insert back flush with the bumper? I looked at the thread suggested but still can figure the connection out.

No sorry man , it seems you have to take this bumper off to hook them back in.. Mopar was charging $500 (parts/labor) to do that... I laughed and went to my guy who changed my headlights/ fog lights, and hooked them back on for me for half the price... But just recently it happened again, so I'm going to leave it... Seems like a cheap build/ flawed design because I've seen other GC's with this issue

That's too bad, do you think someone backed into you or is it a design issue? Also did you try asking the dealer to fix it under warranty?

According to Mopar, it's not under warranty for whatever reason, I think he said its cosmetic... Clearly, I believe it's a design flaw with the vehicle since I've seen multiple vehicles with this issue and it should be replaced.... I think someone backed up into me.. And I'm pretty certain that it was a love tap on my bumper because there was no damage to it or my license plate frame. So it seems pretty susceptible to this issue.
