At the moment I would see if you can pull it off so you can keep driving. Then take it to a good shop and have them look it over to see if any bad damage was caused. good luck !

How do I know the replacement part number is there going to be a number printed on it somewhere


Look and see. Since we can't see it and you can't tell us what the part is how could anyone know? Man up and take a look.


Probably a screwdriver at a minimum. I would say there are some plastic rivets too, so have a nylon pry tool. Easiest fix would be to get it over to the dealership so they can remove and repair. Have it towed if possible. The parts department can get you a new part if nothing else was damaged. I would have the car put on a lift and have it inspected.
