Quarter Panel damage Sign In

I damaged the driver front QP. The upper panel has been bent in and seems to have popped off some clips on the inside that hold the two panels together? What would be the best approach for fixing this?

Please see photos attached. Thank you.

Best approach? Drive it to a body shop and ask them to fix it.

There are pinch clips that hold the forward part of the bumper but there will be one of two screws at the back corner. You may have broken the plastic retainer but you for sure tore the bolts out.

A good body many can get it back in place and get it bolted back in. It's not a big deal.

Thank you for the reply. What would be the ballpark cost of having a body shop do this?

That depends on the extent of the damage. Just go there and find out.

By the way. that is not a quarter panel. It is a fender and a bumper cover.
