loose bumperette after tanny install...?

After hassling to find the time to finish my car, just discovered that the driver side bumperette is loose.. :-(

Didn't noticed that the bumperette was loose when I installed the SpeedArt exhaust and now I have to decide to remove the muffler again to have access to the rear of the bumperette or to remove the rear bumper to tie things up.

I have never removed the rear bumper, but what would be the easiest way to tighten the bumperette? Muffler removal or bumper removal..?

Your comments will be welcome, thanks!

Tighten the bolt on the bottom of the bumperette.

James, the bumperette does not have any bolts that are visible around the bumper, they are attached from behind the bumper (at least on my car, '07 Cayman)

That is why I was wandering if removing the bumper would be easier (quicker) than removing the exhaust again... thanks!

If it's anything like mine, removing thr bumper cover is way easier thn removing thr muffler.
