2005 E Class Estate rear bumper.

I wonder if any of you kind people could advise the best route of putting my rear bumper back to where it should be.

I'm not sure how it came unclipped, but It won't seem to push back in (even with force).

Is there a trick?

I'm not massively mechanically minded, so I can't take the lot off and try to refit.

Many thanks in advance.

Unlikely to come away like that unless it has been hit, it will probably need to come off and then on again.

This^^ Take it off, 3x 10mm's with in the boot each side behind the carpet sections, 2x 10mm i think 1 each below the light clusters and 2 more plastic straps on the underside boot floor.

All from memory so may be abit out but shouldn't take any longer than 30 mins

Straighten then 2x mental brackets out that will probably been bent, and reposition.

There are 2x plastic sliders the fit with in the bumper brackets each side, these may have come adrift, You wont really know until the bumper is off.
