Help: Broken Fender/Bumper Clip

Anybody know if this can be fixed without replacing the whole fender? Both sides have cracked where the bumper connects to the fender. It looks like the bumper guide(?) is broken and needs to be either glued back together and repainted or replaced entirely. The plastic clip that holds the bumper screws is also stripped... Anybody know the part #s for these parts?

If the whole bracket is cracked or coming off, the fender needs to be replaced since it all is one part connecting to the bumper. Had similar issue with my car and was told to replace the whole fender by body shops that specialize in fixing BMWs..but after taking it to an independent body shop he was able to bond it really well

Thanks for chiming in. I had a feeling it was all one piece. I'm also going to drop it off at an indy shop Tuesday to do the same. Both fender brackets are cracked and I'm not down to pay for 2 brand new fenders plus paint lol.

Yeah some body shops really want you to spend 2,000+ for a problem that can be done for 500
good luck!

it does look like the clip piece that was posted from ecs tuning.

i think you should take your bumper off and take a look. it isn't very hard. in fact, the damage you have looks like someone tried to take off the bumper without unscrewing the screws inside the fender liner that hold the bumper under the headlight.
