    How to Repair Hole in Plastic Bumper?

    I hit a low obstruction and the lower screw at the front of the wheel well ripped out of the bumper plastic and the wheel well plastic. Is their any repair method that will allow me to rejoin the edges of the hole in the bumper cover? Epoxy? Heat? Fiberglass? JB Weld? The repair will not show, therefore appearance is not a consideration.

    Heat will probably do it, but will be difficult to do without burning.

    JB-weld might work, but won't flex like plastic/rubber, so probably won't work long. Epoxy is probably the same.

    A couple months ago I got some plastic epoxy. Super nasty smell, but it sets in about 20 minutes into a plastic material, and adheres to the original plastic super well. It doesn't flex much or at all, but it is designed specifically for plastic. I think its called plasti-weld. I'm not sure who makes it. Comes in one of those double-syringe doodads.

    I saw a 03 with two small holes in the bumper at the dealership and within a few hours they were repaired. If I had not know where the holes were, I am not sure I could have found them. I do not know the cost, but you might want to check with your dealer.
