Rear bumper reflectors

Hi all,
I walked back to my car today and noticed it was missing the left rear bumper reflector. I can only assume that due to the really cold weather and bumpy roads (in Chicago on my rotations) caused it to loosen up and fall off. My question is how is the reflector fixated onto the bumper? Glue, clips? Thanks in advance, and my apologies if it has been discussed but I couldn't find much.

Also sry about the dirty car, very salty here

By the way. Are those led license plate bulbs? Where did you get them?

Facelift models come with LED license plate illumination.

I got these leds from ecs tuning they're the ones that replace your entire plate bulb housing. I really like them very bright while matching the door LEDs.

Btw mine is not a facelift it's an 08 model. Wish I had the updated idrive controls though!

Carguy how hard was it for you to put the reflector back. I had the same issue left rear went missing, I cant see to put it back. Did you have to bed the reflector straight, did you have to bang it with something.

Thanks

Hey, the bumper reflector just clicks right in. Very easy to do. Just found the part #online and night it from a dealer for like 35$. Mine is still in lol knock on wood.
