HELP: 1983 308QV front bumper pushed in

Had a little mishap recently and the right side of the front bumper was pushed in (see picture below). I haven't taken it apart but wanted to ask if anyone could recommend the best way to fix this. I know there is an "energy absorber" (as described in the 1983 spare parts catalogue) or shock absorber that attaches the bumper to the frame. Can this shock be pulled back out to its original position or does it need replacement?

I recall reading threads on 308 owners modifying their front and rear bumper shocks by shortening the supports to give it a more recessed European look but I couldn't find those threads.

Thanks in advance for your help.
