Hi
Is the bumper metal or plastic? If plastic there is a Styrofoam filler behind the bumper to absorb most of the impact and you need to change that as well.. If Metal then you have 2 shock absorbers that is what keeps the bumper in place, there are 4 screws per shock total of 8 and the shocks need to be replaced also, as they are collapsible shocks that after a hit they go in to take up most of the hit and do not come back out, do not leave them change them for safety, as if someone else hits you the damage will be far greater than with new bumper shocks.
With plastic follow the lines of the bumper and when it joins the body of the car there should be some fasteners and at times clips also, and most are used under the car and where the bumper joins the body. Or if you want to fix just the bump, depending on how deep it is MAACO in the USA can do it for you, or if you want to tackle it then you need to sand down the bump to the plastic, use bondo made for plastic bumpers and fix the dent in layers, 1/4" at a time, and allow to harden before you body file the bondo and add another 1/4" till you have fixed the dent. Or get a new bumper from the web and some places even paint then for you as long as you can get the paint code, that they might know by the VIN, or just ask a dealer they will give you the paint code and you get an aftermarket bumper that you swap out. BUT CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN WITH WHAT IS UNDER THE BUMPER, for your safety don't leave damaged or bent supports etc.

Toyota Sienna bumper dent


These vans have a styrofoam bumper wrapped in semi-rigid plastic. When you dented the bumper you probably dented the styrofoam as well, so depending on how deep the dent is you may not be able to bring it back to normal.

The surest way to fix the dent would be to remove the bumper by unbolting it, then taking out the styrofoam and pushing out the dent.

Rear bumper on mazda mpv


Removal of the rear bumper on an Mazda 2004 to 2006 MPV.
It's afairly simple task: 1) Open the rear hatch or (door) remove the torx screws at the bottom of the weather strip. 2) Remove both tail lights by unscrewing the two phillip screws on each light, once removed the lights pulling toward the side of the van. Let them hang from the wires. You will see a clip (white in color),pry it out from behind the bumper material and go to the next step. 3) Remove three 8mm head screws in each fender well and three plastic clips. Then remove an 8mm screw at the top corner of the bumper against the rear fender. If your car has splash guards remove them as well. 4) Remove the two clips at the bottom of the bumper attached to the under carriage. 5) Pull the bumper toward the back of the vehicle be careful with the tail lights. Remember, they are hanging loose.
And that's it, you have done it.

Sure! pop the trunk and remove screws and screw covers inside, then look in the wheel wells for the remaining screw/clips. Lastly underneath, near exhaust may be a few last screws to keep from flapping. Just make sure to watch for any wires from rear cameras, or reverse sensors. You will not need to remove any of the foam behind bumper.
