Default Front Bumper

First off, I hope everyone has been well! I have not posted in ages due to a pretty crazy life lately...

I'm not sure if I have any pictures of this (I'm at school and can't view most pictures), but my the passenger side of the front bumper is sagging... I was curious if I take the front bumper off, if I could put it back to normal easily? Or if I take it off... it won't be going back on. I've finally gotten to the point I can start working on the Legend again.

Thank you in advance for the feedback!

Sounds like the guide that holds the corner bumpers in place popped out. You can remove the bumper and try to realign it.

If I can't realign it, will it go back in easily? The way it was...

I don't want to take it off and then not be able to put it back on.

hey, my 88 Sedan's rear bumper is sagging on the left side too. I just put some wire through the screw hole and tied it to prevent it from sagginh too much.

How do I go about permanently fixing this problem?

Default Ambient Sensor?

What is that "ambient sensor" in step one of the bumper removal?
Is it part of the climate control system that my 87 L Sedan doesn't have?

The ambient sensor is for the auto climate control. 86-87 sedan never came with an auto climate. So for the people that has manual climate control, you don't need to worry about that sensor.
