Securing Rear Bumper Cover

Got a little too close to a cement parking block while backing in to a parking space tonight. When I pulled forward, the 3 black push pins connecting the painted bumper cover to the underside of the spare tire well ripped out. All three of the holes on the spare tire well are destroyed and useless and 1 of the holes on the painted bumper cover is cracked.

The bumper is sill half way secured but it does sway front to back. It looks like replacing the spare tire well completely is rather expensive and difficult.

Any ideas??

I did pretty much the exact same thing you did. I replaced my spare tire compartment, bumper and lower valance. I put the GXP valence on. Cost me about $2000 to do it all myself.
