The bumper on your vehicle is made up of several components of the bumper cover. There is the bumper made of foam and the bumper bar. I assume the bumper cover is the part that is detached. If it is damaged, then a replacement will need to be installed. Replacement bumper covers come semi-prepped and are painted to match. This will need to be done by a body shop. If the foam is damaged, it will need to be replaced as well.
