My just broke last week too haha..Going without it
I had issues with mine as well. When the bumper is removed, you can see a black plastic piece that secures the bumper with some snap clips. I removed this (2 screws) and flexed the pieces back so that they would hold the bumper better. I believe I may have applied a little heat to the piece as I was flexing it. Hold it in position in let it cool. Reinstall the piece and snap the bumper back in. For extra holding, I also put a new screw through the fender lip into the plastic wheel well cover just below where the broken clip is. I used 1 of those U shaped metal clips that act as nut behind the wheel well cover. I also chose a nice black screw that looks stock. Everything has been installed for about a month with no problems.
