So yeah turns out our chihuahua does not have enough chew toys and thought that the sienna would be the ultimate chew toy.
Gnarly creatures they are.
So the question would be: is that lip replaceable? Or does the whole bumper needs to be replaced?
Thanks in advance
Also use this as a PSA if you have a chihuahua

If you file or sand off the rough edges, will what's left still be presentable? Might not need to replace.

And you need a larger "dog".

I have a schnauzer... to me schnauzers are the perfect breed..... not too small not to big. intelligent little creatures..... but this Chihuahua was a rescue... we found her on the streets, hungry, alone, no tag. Posted all over the neighborhood and no one came forward..... so... I guess that's how I got a chihuahua.... I guess now we know why the previous owner abandoned her. (its a joke)

For DIY fix maybe can gorilla glue something [compound that hardens] to that side [may need to cut wee bit more] and then paint to match.

Easy DIY fix is just to cut same on both sides.

For parts... it's not the Bumper stay or absorber?

Right drawing but I think the part you need is Valance, front, 52112-08010 or 20 depending on trim.


But for $100 bucks, I agree with datsa, start with file and sand first and see how it looks.
It might be the first time the dog chewed on it but it might not be the last, so maybe dont spend any money just yet.
Plus who knows how many other times you might damage it over the next few years.

Hey thanks!
glad to see its "not that expensive" but yeah, I will sand it down this weekend and see how it goes.
I have no idea what's wrong with this dog, but I just returned from petsmart with a "Dog repellant" and this canine specimen has the nerve to LICK the thing wherever its applied... it's supposed to REPELL not attract....
something is seriously wrong with chihuahuas in general, not only this one.
