Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

I noticed today that both sides of my Jeep have the plastic fender flares peeling up.. Anyone else notice the plastic trim above the wheels coming unstuck yet? ITs only held on with adhesive and ill be going to the dealership to have it fixed ASAP.

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

hmm...thats unfortunate. I think they made a mistake attaching those flares with 3m tape

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

Mine was delivered with one of the flares in the back seat. They should be clipped on and adhered with double sided tape. Not sure what the defect in these are but something is def wrong.

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

No problems with mine at all.
It's been through car washes and they still bond flush.
Maybe certain build dates are prone?

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

A few months ago they were holding SRTs for that very issue.

I am not sure. When my Jeep was delivered they had told me about the flare and said that the flare is only being held on by the clips and not the adhesive, so don't take it through any car washes and try and keep the speed down because if wind gets behind it I could lose it.

Don't know how or where they clip if thats what you are trying to figure out.

This is what I was interested to know long ago..... So, we have an answer that the fenders are the same as the lower spec vehicles, and the flares are simply 3M taped on?

It'll be funny sitting inside a dealership watching flares fall off on SRT's on the forecourt on a hot day!

How can Jeep let this stuff through QC is my question..... don't they do hot weather testing?!
