Pulled accross a parking block and slightly loosened the bumper from the top side corners. Also tore loose the part that connects underneath. I believe underneath I can remove the bolts there and refasten the bottom but not sure about the side.
To refasten the sides if the hole has been broken or torn is to find a spot to redrill through the bumper and metal bracket that it mounts to and use a nut/bolt with large flat washer on both sides to connect it, cheap to do takes little time am legal

The Internet, though, has a large number of web sites where
you can buy service manuals and schematics from bookstores,
publishers, and other collectors. Here is just a sampling of
what sites are out there:
Vw's are a bit complicated. Generally though, there are up to 5 Torx T25 screws in the wheel splash guard just behind the bumper. There might be one hidden up near the corner what the bumper corner meets the fender. Down by the fog light covers (usually behind it) are more torx screws. Underneath the bumper are about 4 more torx screws, but these are often machine threads like bolts. You will need to probably find the few screws holding the top of the grille in and remove them also as there are two torx bolts behind the corners of the grille. The bumper should note be able to slide of the guides below the fenders. Good luck and be careful when yanking and prying on plastic parts.
I doubt it, but anything's possible. The only thing connecting the two things would be the parking lights and dash lights, not the gauges. Sounds like a problem with the body controller, or the wiring harness behind the dash. Advance warning - there are miles of wiring in a Jaguar. And the problem will have to be occuring for the garage to find it. Do you think it only happens on trips, and not just local driving ? Could be something heating up if you need 50+ miles to make it happen.
There are six bolts from the bumper into the rear cross member to remove, accessible from inside the boot. You'll have to remove the rubber plugs to get to two of them. After that, remove the boot lining (that's the "trunk" lining if you're a Yank) and you'll see four bolts (two on each side) that secure the bumper by screwing downwards through the metal wing into the top sides of the bumper. Now go underneath the car, and there are two bolts accessible at the rear of the bumper, accessible from beneath. Now you need to uncrew a pair of 10mm plastic nuts under the wheel arch lining/mudflap and two which are behine the rear wheels. Fold the wheel arch lining away from the bumper and there's a screw in the very front of the sides of the wing right at the point where it connects to the wheel arch. remove these (one on each side) and the bumper will slide backwards and off the body. Voila. Piece of cake. Remember to disconnect the wiring to the rear sensors and pull the multiplug through out of the hole, carefully removing the grommet.
Re-fitting is a bit trickier, so use a couple of beer crates or boxes to hold the bumper up below the rear as you line up the tabs on the air exits and slide the bumper back.
if you go to a body shop they may have a way to refasten the bumper cover without replacing it they do get creative when fixing things.if not then the bumper cover will have to be replaced,check out a wrecking yard you might have luck finding one not damaged due to an accident and may even be the proper colour.
the rear bumper is attached with "Brackets", however, the real bumper is a steel bar, inside the bumper "cover". The bumper cover is a plastic cover that is visible outside and painted. I am not sure to which you are referring. Maybe your best bet would be to stop by a auto body repair facility and have them write you a free estimate for repair. That would list the parts needed. From there you can find the name of the part you are looking for and order it yourself.

to do that you have 4bolts to remove all 6mm and two screws
so you want a 10mm socket and about 30cm of extensions
and a 10mm combination spanner and a phillips screwdriver
maybe a pair of plires
first remove both wheel arch linings
-thier should be 3-5 plastic fir tree buttons (they just pull out with a good yank) and the front is fixed to the bottom of the bumper by one screw.
after your happy you have removed all of those fixings just give the hole thing a tug and it should come loose.
(remove both sides)
after that thier are two bolts which are hard to get two (one iether side). its best to get access by looking from inside the wheel arch. if you imagine from the side of the car(looking at the wing) its probable 4" below the wing and 4" in from the start of the bumper
(hard to see without an image)
after thoose two thier are two simple ones to get to. theese are aproximately either side of the radiator, and you only have to loosen them. they are looking towards the sky and its easyest to get them loose by a long extension on the ratchet and lieing looking up at them.
i cant really remember but i have a feeling the washer bottle has a bracket which might also be secured onto the the bumper. which is on the drivers side and tucked up in the corner.
after all the bolts are out and the two which hold the crumple zone on are loose, then the bumper can be pulled right away from the car. (making sure you have disconected the foglights)
after the bumpers off its a doddle. 3 x6mm bolts which hold the headlamp in place and the wiring is straight forward.
