Thanks.

If you remove them you will have an indent where the base model flares set and holes for the clips.
Adding new 3m tape is easy if youre out of warranty

Thanks for the tip.

I took my '14 to the dealer to fix my right rear flare. They got it within a quarter inch of alignment and said it was the best they could do. Back at home I found a small black screw, pushed the flare in and screwed it there. Worked, perfect alignment. Did the other side just for symmetry.

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

Ive never had the problem...but i helped a friend in his summit. Its 3m double sided with the red backing. You can get it on ebay or at auto parts stores. Be sure to remove all adhesive and clean both surfaces very well with alcohol. Let dry and then add the tape applying lits of pressure. Tape down molding with low tack painters tape and heat it up with a hair dryer and let set over night. Do not drive in the rain or do it outdoors. Tape must be heated and stay dry to set properly. If u can park in the sun after setting all night..that is good too. Do it in a warm day or in a heated garage.

Literally every flare on my 2014 Summit was re-attached at least twice, only to eventually be completely replaced with new ones.

On my 2014 SRT, too, every flare was redone twice, with each having been replaced with new flares on the second replacement.

NO ONE should be doing these themselves! Take it back to the dealer and have them do it- there have been design changes since the initial design, typically the reason why all four (actually six, there there are two portions per side in the rear) are completely replaced with new flares.
