    I've noticed since yesterday my rear bumper on the passanger side seems to be popping out.

    There's no signs of anyone hitting it and I'm wondering either there has been a hit and the glue is failing or maybe it's a Honda thing.

    Any ideas
    (Added the right side for comparison)

    The bumpers are held in, at that spot, by clips. Its possible it just popped itself loose. Give it a smack and it should go back in again

    Thanks @Nighthawk I did press it in but not with force.
    Didn't want to break anything.
    I'll press harder later

    Solid tapping should be enough to seat it home. Its unusual as they don't normally free themselves

    I this have issue. It only seems to occur in hot/warm weather. The plastic must warp/expand enough for the panel to come out of alignment. It will fix itself by the Autumn.
