My car has an automatic transmission.

You’ll have to take a good look around and behind the bumper. There are more than 4 fasteners holding the front bumper cover on the car. You must remove the lower splash shield and loosen the fasteners hidden behind there too. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come take a closer look at the bumper cover and offer more hands on assistance.
