New push pins and drill a couple hole on both sides of crack to install zip ties this will hold or you need to replace the cracked piece (bumper cover etc)

1999 cadillac deville front bumper got pushed in 1 inch, how do I pull it back out

The compression shocks are not adjustable.
Trying to pull on it can cause it to explode, and seriously injure anyone near that.
However, there is a solution you may be happy to do.
You should find the place where the compression shocks fasten to the frame ( such as it is) has bolts/screws, and you should be able to loosen those bolts/screws and push the bumper back out to position.
You are trying to push the shock as a unit.
You should have an inch of play, for example a long slot should be where the bolts/screws slide.
Do not use a lot of force. do not hammer on it, nor pull it with a chain.
Be blessed.

Not to be funny, but most people hook a chain to a large tree or post and either pull it with the force of the truck or use a chain hoist.

How do you replace the rear liscense plate lights

Look behind you bumper where the lights are installed. There should be a clip slipped over the back of the housing that holds the light into the bumper. 1 per light. Use some needlenose plyers or a screwdriver to push it off. The light sould pull out of the bumper from the other side. You can disconnect the harness is you wish or just replace the bulb. Whichever suits your fancy. After replacement put the holder back into the bumper and slip the clip back on behind it. 10 minute job.

Rear bumper knocked

depending on the year. If it is a 95 to 99 all you have to do is take the 3 push clips out of the wheel weel. Pull back the plastic linerand there is a 10 mm going in the 1/4 panel. Take the interior trim out there 4 to 6 10mm in there. Then jack the car up crawl underneth and there are two 14mm bolts on each of the frame rails. With all them out the bumper will pull right off with the reinforcment still attatched. Take the plastic push clips out and you can separate the bumper and reinforcment.

I need to replace the honda logo on the front grill for my 2001 civic. How can i do that ?

Unfortunately the bumper has to come off. The "H" is held on with tiny "push" clips, the only way to push them on is with the bumper off. To remove the bumper there are 4 clips on top of the bumper, when the hood is lifted, they are visable. Use a small screwdriver to pry up the center portion of the clip, there are 6 of the same clip under the bumper. There are 2 screws where the bumper meets the fender (they unscrew straight down, they are not on an angle.) There are also 2 screws under the bumper, below where the headlight meets the sidemarker, in that corner. Once everthing is removed, reach in the wheel well and pull the bumper out, first out to the side, then pull back towards you. Once you have the bumper off, lay it face down on a surface that won't scratch it. Place the "H" in the holes, Lay the clip over the stem and using a 1/4 inch socket, push the clip over the stem while holding the "H". Good luck!

Rear bumper cover is loose on one side

The sides of the bumper slide on over a large pin to hold them in place. The easiest and correct way of getting it back on is to unbolt the bumper cover from the impact absorbers in the rear and slide the cover off by pulling it straight back. When you slide it back on, make sure the cover goes on the pins on each side before pushing it all the way back in place and bolting it back up to the impact absorbers. If you have been rear-ended then the tracks that these pins slide into may be broken. If thats the case you will have to replace the bumper cover

How to install rear bumperr

there are two ten mm bolts that hold up the two corners of the bumper followed by a dozen or so push pin type plastic clips remove the two tens and pull the centers out of all the plastic clips and remove the lower halves, the bumper then has a plastic bracket on each side that if pulled straight back will slide right off, as for the sheet metal reapir you can either buy a cheap bodymans slide hammer and drill and pull where it needs or if there is damage to the bumper rebar ( metal bar under cover) you can get a ratcheting "come along" and set the ebrake and chain the other end to a tree, and pull it that way .sounds like you may even be able to use a big sledge hammer and knock the trunck back out also -jeff
