Front Bumper Is Loose. Sides Came Off The Support. Easy Fix?

Recently my bumper became unglued. I used the very high-strength plastic glue from Autozone and it lasted for a few months but came off again.

What is the best way to reattach the bumper to the support?

I'd also like to know. Is this a common problem on factory or aftermarket bumpers? Or both?

I had a kick plate crack and used Permatex Plastic Tank Repair Kit ,worked great ,It has a fiberglass mesh with it,been on for 2 years and hasn't cracked. You could try construction grade liquid nails if there is big enough area to glue.. Make sure you clean it well.

Not sure if thats the one with the mesh .but I think it is.

Silicon is the best solution.it has a good adhesion to the bumper, but you have hold it intact after applying atleast for 2 hours

Had the same problem on my 2008 Trailblazer LT. Did some VERY mild off-roading and the clip snapped and the bumper cover sprung out about an inch. I'm gonna give the Permatex a try. BTW- I also had my engine manifold crack at 50K miles. Paid $500 to have it replaced then found out Chevy will cover it for 10 Years or 120K miles for any owner. They certainly don't build em for 4 wheeling like they used to.

I had the same problem. The body shop use a plastic weld/ glue from Lord products called 143. Or somthing like that.
