Q: Hood and bumper detaching

asked by on

The front driver's side hood/bumper area is detaching from the body.

I think your best bet is to have someone visually inspect the car in person. It may be caused by loose hardware, or it could be warping plastic. I believe a body shop would be the best place to go for this situation.
