Default Rear bumper falling off slowly?

Hi All,

My 99 Honda Civic (HX)'s rear bumper seems to be slowly developing a gap
where the bumper is connected to the side of the body frame. It's
almost as if whatever clamps where holding it in place are loosening so
it seems like the bumper is ditending from the body.

Could anyone tell me what may be going on here, hopefully before the
thing decides to just fall off one day.

Thanks in Advance,

John

Rust has dissolved the extension of the rear quarter panel that the bumper
slots onto. Almost every Civic of that generation has terrible problems
with rust in that area.

I haven't seen a civic of that generation that does not have that
problem here in Idaho where the rust is accelerated
