In April a lady backed her car into my (parked) car. I had literally gotten out of the car just 15 seconds ago and crossed the street. I heard the impact and returned to my car to inspect it. Her car had hit my (rubber) license holder, which seems to have absorbed the impact and there was no apparent damage. I should have gotten her insurance info anyway but thinking no harm done I stupidly just accepted her apology.
Flash forward to yesterday and I noticed for the first time that my front bump was slightly misaligned with the rest of the car. It’s off by maybe two millimeters and I would not have even noticed had I not happen to see it from a certain angle. The whole section moves slightly when I push it, and when I used my knee to push against my license plate, the movement was especially noticeable which is why I am pretty sure that it was that collision that dislodged the bumper slightly.
My question is, do you think it’s worthwhile to take it into the mechanic? I am a first time car owner and I dunno if this may be something I can fix by myself?
