    So my wife drives a 2005 Toyota Camry LE and when we bought it, the front bumper was split in the middle. I want to get it fixed but don't kno how hard it is to take off the bumper and put on a new one. Has anyone done this before on a car? or would it be better to just take it to a body shop and have them fix it? i would show pics but i have none and my wife's at work...

    try craigslist or toyotanation.com. Sometimes, people sell used camery bumpers and its WAYYY less than going to a body shop.

    np, I have installed bumpers on trucks but never had to replace a bumper cover on a car.
    you can do it just take your time and watch whow the old one comes off.
