Default Front bumper clips not working?

I noticed the two side clips for my front bumper arent holding it.
It seems they had super small grabbing tips to begin with and now just dont work.
Anyone else have this problem?
A way to fix it?

Mine are the same, I bought 2 new ones at the dealership for less than $5 a piece. I haven't put them on yet but I'm sure they will do the trick.

mine does the same thing. I have seen a lot of 04/05 like this. The tabs on the clips that hold the bumper on are cheaply made. I'm going to replace mine too.

Mine has the same problem.

You'd expect it to have to take some abuse to make it come off like this, but the clip on the passenger side came off twice today from just driving on the highway.


That's my junk bumper so I'll probably just drill some holes and zip tie it on.

When I put on my good bumper, I'll probably just replace the clips.
