ok my black trim on bumper isn't staying in place. further inspection part where clip slides in to bumper allowing me to put screw in and bolt down deflector to bottom out bumper.

if I could find plastic hardner could do that slide clip over to stay in place then rebolt it.

next goal will be to find a rubber deflector from front bumper of newer car and mount it.

I think the black part is polyethylene. Nothing glues to it for long. You can melt it with a hot iron to fix an attachment hole....(if I am reading your post correctly)..

its the part on the bumper itself. The hole on the bumper is to big for the clip, tried bigger clip with a no go. Guess maybe I'll go to parts store on day off see what I can find for fillers or whatever. Just get tired of having the black deflector hanging on the drivers side

Are you saying the clip/nut that holds the screw is falling out? I guess there are many ways to fix it, but I would have to see it, I guess. You can just use a larger piece as backing material, or hot glue something in place then put your clip on that.

If its just a worn out metal clip the screw goes into, they have those in the Help sections of auto parts stores. If its not rusty, you can also tap them a bit flatter with a hammer and reinstall it. I do it all the time on cars Im working on. Makes the screw tighter in the hole. I wouldnt be using any kind of glue...like said nothing really likes sticking to the bumper material. Its like the same thing body filler spreaders are made from because everything pops off of it.

Before you mentioned typing on a phone, It sounded like you were doing a bad Vladimir Putin impression LOL! " I go to parts store on day off see what I can find"

Like mentioned above, its hard to get anything to stick to that polyethylene. Your best bet is trying to plastic weld it, or possibly a fine stainless steel wire punched through the plastic, and then wrapped around the bolt.
