Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

Mine is sticking out... The tape is holding the trim, but the whole fender on passengers side is out about 1/4 inch... They claim they put clips in it... I don't think so

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

Finally got my rig into the dealership….they said they've never had to repair any other Wk2's for this issue…..anyway, they had a mechanic come look at it….he was going to attempt to change out some clips, but after looking at it, he said their body shop will have to do this job. So I went down to their body shop with provided new OEM baggie of clips from dealership. Bodyshop inspects, and states that if they replace with same clips, in time they will do the exact same thing, as they are intended to do this (unclip) if you ever remove the front bumper. I was advised you need to remove the front bumper, if you ever have to replace the headlight assembly, whether this is true or not, I have no idea, but this is why they did not want to appoxy/glue the flare permanently. Bodyshop suggests that if they put a screw up thru the flare into the liner, it will never be seen, removed easily, and will not allow the fender to pop again. Gave them the go ahead and its now fixed. They did both sides too. Ill get a pic over the weekend, to show exactly where they did this. Happy to have this fixed, but not impressed with Jeep for having such a poor flare design.

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

Add me to the list, 2015!! R/R qtr flare sticking out about an 1/8 of an inch. I can press on it to make it flush again but pops out when I let go. Unbelievable that this happens on a vehicle like this, actually any vehicle today. Mouldings been on cars for 40+ years. Really not rocket science.

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

didn't look prior to new screw installed by body shop in the fender, but this is what is there now…and this fixed my issue….there are two screws there in the pic, not sure which one they added...

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

Problem is that some are coming loose at the top, where they rest against the painted part of the fender, not the bottom, near the wheel well opening....

Some good news...

One of my fender moldings has been coming apart since delivery of my 2015 - the dealership attempted to replace it under warranty, though Chrysler denied the claim and refused to replace it, stating that the adhesive should be removed and replaced and the old part reattached.

I called the SRT hotline and the rep states that if Chrysler denied the warranty, SRT can't intervene and change the decision but he would attempt to resolve the issue. The end result...SRT is covering the cost of the brand new part!

The SRT rep stated that he's never heard of this issue, but suggested that I knew of anyone else with the same problem I should have the contact the SRT line so they can help resolve the issue.

The SRT department has money set aside in their budget to help us out - they want us as long term customers and will do what's necessary to make us happy.

Do you have the contact info for SRT? I'm having issues finding a qualified tech to diagnose my 6-5 clunk. My regional service manager is shooting down all the dealerships in my area because they don't sell/service enough SRT's. It only seems right that SRT sends someone out to look at it if that's the case.
