09 Focus warped bumper cover

OK this is my first post. Three days ago i was rear ended. My rear bumper cover is slightly warped around the license plate, wrinkled the paint around there also. There is a circular indentation from the other vehicles license plate screw also.

First- how hard is it to remove the rear cover from the vehicle?

Second- The ins. company estimate doesn't have a new bumper cover listed, they have repair/overhaul to the cover only. Should i get the cover replaced or will they be able to repair mine ( don't want any problems with the cover after they repair/bondo it).

Any and all help is appreciated. -Russ

My daughter backed her Mustang into a pole on the driver's side and slightly deformed the corner of the bumper cover. She took it to a body shop and they said they could fix the bumper cover without putting a new one on. I asked how and they said they could heat it up to basically put it back to the right shape. She had it fixed and you would never know it was hit.

pictures would be a lot more helpful to see the actual damage. it isnt that hard to take it off if you know how to raise the car slightly and take the rear wheels off. you just have to find all the right bolts
