That is a bummer! Normally, I'm willing to do most anything, but when it came to the towbar, I was a little leary about maybe breaking a tab when removing the bumper cover, and I decided to bite the bullet and pay the dealer to do it as the consequences were lots more than I was willing to risk. I never would have thought that would be a problem. Wonder how much torque you actually applied. Considering what it is holding, and that the factory bar attaches there, one would expect that it should be quite robust. Be especially careful of rustproofing, as if you can weld it back, that heat will burn off the factory applied layer, and you'll need to re-apply some.
