Hey all. My wife didn't pull up through the garage door far enough and the closing door caught and knocked out one of the rear bumper reflectors. The plastic pieces on both sides were damaged so it needs to be replaced. Couple questions...

Is it illegal to drive without one of the reflectors?

Where is a good place to get one? I see them online for about $25.

Thanks!

No, not all vehicles have separate reflectors on the back and some are part of the rear light assembly.
Is it possible to plastic glue it?

Tried to super/gorilla glue the tab that broke off but it was too flimsy and broke again when trying to reinsert the reflector. I could probably glue different parts of it to get it to stay in place but am hesitant if it needed to be removed later for whatever reason.

There is a special glue for it. Gorilla glue is basically super glue almost. It is better to go to Kia and they can replace it for ya if you bought one online.
