I was in a slight collision with another car. well long story short, i
gotta take the bumper off and put it back on straight. Does anyone know
what the best way to going about this is. I need to know where the
bolts or clips are?? Please help!! Its just pushed in on one side and
pulled out a little on the other side.
There are black buttons looking things that the middle pries out of under the hood right where the plastic bumber starts. BE VERY CAREFUL REMOVING THESE THEY WILL BREAK OFF IN A MINUTE!!!! Next u need to remove the front tires and support the car on jackstands. Then take a long (at least 24 inch) extension and remove the bolts holding the bumper on both sides now it should come off.

First make sure the battery is disconnected to avoid blowing out your air bags. Next replace the offending collision sensor, it should be located on the radiator support, you may also need to remove the front bumper cover to gain access. If the vehicle was in a collision and that is the reason it's being replaced, then make sure you also check wiring for any damage as a short can cause the airbags to go off again unexpectedly and cause injury or damage to the vehicle.
After replacing the faulty part, clear the code(s) from the BCM.

Due to the collision a frame was damaged - that's why your headlamps are not lighting the road well. Try taking off the front bumper, headlamps, grill, fender and take a look for bended frame. I would take a hammer and bend the headlamp connections so that all the lamp turn a few degrees upwards. Then when you put everything back together - use your headlamp height regulator to make the beam light properly. Hope this helps.

Behind each light you will see a small door in the back liner. Remove
the 2 plugs in each door by pulling them straight out.
2. Gently pull
back liner doors to expose rear of light assembly.
3. Remove three brass
10mm nuts from exposed bolts.
4. Slightly lift up bottom inside corner
of light assembly, Pull back or sideways to center of bumper or trunk
rear with wiggle movement to pull out rear light assembly. Takes a
little while, but piece of cake.
5. Plug in the new bulb and put everything back in place.
Sorry to hear about your collision. The sensors are mounted behind the bumper.If you look underneath you will see them and they should pop out i would start by making a visual inspection for obvious damged sensors and replace those.might have to pop them out and look closely start with ones that look like they took hardest hit. hope this helps let me know what you find and we can dig deeper if need to there is usually one or two that are obvious damaged
Put a rag between the bottom of the tail light and the bumper so you dont scratch your paint. Remove the two screws that are visable and then grab the other side and pull straight out towards you (sometimes a slight **** is required). There are 2 body plugs that are holding it in on the side. The angle makes a difference, and be careful not to scratch the lens or bumper.
