Plastic welding...

So i decided to paint my grille and in the process of taking it off I forgot about a clip and broke the piece of the bumper right under the pass. headlight. The crack did't flake at all and is a perfect fit. How or can I fix this? Any help is appreciated as always..

Been there-hell of way to start a project, sucks.
If its rigid plastic-super glue?. Though theres all kinds of plastic cements. Id also glue or epoxy a piece behind after is dried. If its somthing that flexes someone with more smarts than me hopefully will have a suggestion. They do make a plastic welders-dont know if it be cheaper to pick up a used replacement-

Some 2 part epoxy should work.
Not that dissimilar from JB weld, but it'll set up in about 10 min.
Put an ample amount on each surface. I usually scuff up the back side with sandpaper and apply a good amount across the break/split to give a little extra support.
