I recently had my muffler replaced and a few days later noticed the rear bumper cover on my 2011 was missing the torx bumper cover bolts. Anyone have suggestions on finding OEM replacements? We're a bit nervous driving it without the bumper cover fully attached. I'm glad we have another smart to see what the bolt/screw looked like.

I looked there last night for him... couldn't make out the exact bolt/screw because, well... let's just not call them the Bumper Cover Bolts, that would be too easy.
I'm thinking this "Distance Sensor Bolt" is the right one... it's got an A.K.A. of "Bumper Cover Screw."

[Edit: On the other hand, I just noticed the second tow hook cover on the right side of your bumper... I think it's a 451 and I'm looking at 453 parts... duh]

I just took my hood off and realized that it is the same torx screw that attaches the front bumper cover and is the same torx screw that attaches the hood tether strap to the chassis. but what do they call it? Arrrrg!

Seriously... one of the sites had it at $4.40.
It's been amazing what I can find at my local Ace Hardware instead.
