smoky mountain curb-ed :(

Hi Ya'll , i was out at the smokies yesterday enjoying the fall colors, I pulled into one of the lookout spots and was about to park the car, i was looking at the left side of the curb to estimate how far it was but apparently the curb was too far in on the right side and before i know it i heard and felt the bumper scrape the curb . Thinking it'll be ok to just reverse out , that's what i did and boom . there was a message saying check the front right parking lamp. I got out to see what happened . The end result was the pics you see below. How do i fix this !! do you think the whole bumper or fender will need to be replaced ? )apart from the lower bumper scratches how can i fix the fender gap ? i did notice that the screws for the inside cover are still there but behind it. i don't know how that happened! any suggestions and recommendations to where i can get this fixed at in Atlanta ? car is past warranty (not that it matters for this repair)

Also, i don't know how the parking lamp popped out,one tap and it started working and haven't seen the error again. Any solutions how to push it back in ?

My cousin's C350 had the same experience before. He paid about $120 for a body shop to fix and align his front bumper.

Easy fix if you know how to turn a wrench.

Remove the plastic mud guard, then unscrew two 10mm tapping screws holding the fender to the bumper, re align and install in reverse order.
