You're probably looking at around $250 for an OEM replacement. I'd check in with some local repair/salvage yards.

I don't think the lower piece is separate from the painted part of the bumper? If it isn't, then you are looking at a repair of $500+ without the cost of parts. If the lower is separate, you can buy the part from a Toyota dealer and take it to a shop to get a quote. The dealer might even be willing to put it in. Assuming you wouldn't want to do it yourself. In which case, just look up a bumper removal guide for our car.

We here also have no idea how hard you were hit and there are no photos to judge from so keep in mind there could be additional damage behind the cover to the brackets, electronics, safety bar and/or foam, as well as the rear body panel. You might want to consider body shop / insurance options depending on your budget.

Pictures would certainly help with us providing you suggestions for next steps. I don't know if you can get that plastic cover separately either, so it might be worthwhile to look into some aftermarket bumpers if you have to replace the whole thing. Did you back into something or were you hit from behind?

Had a small fender bender and have to replace my lower rear bumper cover . Any suggestions ?

Not sure if this helps but I had to do quite a bit of part replacement with my 2018 so check out this link:

204 for the lower portion, not sure about shipping but usually cheaper than the dealer. I used this site to buy replacement parts for my FRS and proved to be less than the dealer.

I hope you insurance premiums don't go up by too much because that's almost always the case in these scenarios which is a cause for concern.
If you don't mind please keep us posted on what your insurance company does after all is said and done. You don't have to disclose any other information. Sometimes I find dealing with shops directly and avoiding insurance is the best method.

Why would the OP have to be worried at all? The person who hit the OP is at fault per the last reply. So the OP's insurance is not paying a dime for the repairs.

I have seen cases where that happens even if you have no at faults prior. Some people I know with State Farm reported this to be true, causing me to believe its industry wide.

I would have to say there is much more to the story from the people you know concerning State Farm. I've been insured with State Farm since about 1998. I have never been surcharged or have had my rates affected by a not at fault wreck. Nor has my wife. With my Ford Focus which ended up being totaled out by State Farm after I hit a deer, I had a not a fault wreck where some idiot woman paying more attention to her cell phone hit me head on. Caused about $3k in damage. The funny thing was she was also insured by State Farm. I had a comprehensive claim where I hit some animal going about 70 MPH on a highway which caused a few hundred to a thousand dollars in damage. And on the same car, I had that deer strike which damaged the front end of my car. Due to the age and mileage of the Focus, State Farm decided to total out the car. Cut me a check for about $5300. Not once did my rates go up.

My wife had someone rear end her. No affect on the policy rate for her car. Later she hit a deer. Couple of thousand in damage under comprehensive. Again no affect on the policy rate.

I had two incidents with my BMW last year. One where I was at fault. Didn't see the Prius camped out to my left in my blind spot. Changed lanes and bam. About $1500 in damage to my car. Not sure how much the claim was from the other guy. A month or so later, I hit a deer. Caused $6500 in damage under comprehensive. No rate hikes or surcharges happened.

While my experience is my experience and anecdotal, I think it's more or less what one would expect and not some hearsay or wive's tale. Not saying what the people you know said what happened to them was not true. I'm saying based on my experience and what I've seen from others, there has to be more to the story behind any action against their policy for a not at fault incident.
