Having them either re-attach the old one or order and properly paint a new one. First NA vehicle and already had 2 quality control issues - other was a loose bolt eventually found under the gear compartment I believe.
Can't believe we are still having this problem, not impressed with the paint job on mine, will have to get Jeep to fix this

Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

I had same in mine 2014 April '13 build. I used some gorilla glue in a syringe and got it fixed up, but this summer had the dealer replace it and a clip was missing... Still not perfect, but not terrible

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

after 4 trips to 2 different dealers, and a new set of flares painted and installed, Chrysler finally advised the dealer to install flares with urethane adhesive vs. 3M tape. Seems tape was separating in half. Been fine ever since.

Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

After reading this thread, I checked my 15 and noticed the rear driver side fender flare is starting to pop off. I can push my knee against it and it sticks for a few days but then I notice it begins to peel away again. Guess will mention to dealer at next service

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

Man that sucks.
I hope I don't have this problem after buying a 65K vehicle. I will not be happy about it at all. Does Jeep or SRT offer any thing for your troubles for such a high dollar vehicle?

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

when I picked up my 15 from the dealership, the drivers side front fender was already popped out….literally hadn't even driven it yet….I am able to push the rivet/clip back in and it holds for an hour or so, then pops back out….my issue is not from the adhesive tape, its actually a clip that pops in/out. will get it addressed early new year.

WTF Jeep!!! you'd think you have a permanent fix for this!!!!

It's actually pretty pathetic to have a problem like this on any vehicle this day and age. I mean it's a basically a frigging moulding; they've been around a long time.

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

I have a 14 SRT, the left front flare, came un stuck in the front, I just got a piece of 3m double sided trim tape, and pushed it down into the gap and re stuck it, may not be the best idea, but saved a drive across town and an all day wait at the dealers service dept.....at least for now

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

My passenger side rear flare has been popped out (bad adhesive) since I picked it up brand new from the showroom floor. I keep fixing it with adhesive tape but the heat from the weather causes it to pop out again.
