My 2011 had this issue. Took a little coaxing to get the errant clips to re-engage!

For a 55000.00 window sticker they should have put them on at the factory the right way along with the rear assist handles that let the headliner pull down the first time someone was in the backseat. they weren't happy about replacing it either (lol)

Re: 2014 wheel opening mldgs coming off

I've taken off the front bumper cover twice, which involves cutting off the two lowest (non-reusable) plastic rivets on each side (driver & passenger) and loosening (by just pulling the molding out) the others up past where the bumper cover attaches to the fender. To reinstall, I replaced the bottom plastic rivets on the front and just gave the molding a rap with the palm of my hand to reseat the other (reusable) fasteners. Have you tried that?

Re: 2014 wheel opening mldgs coming off

oh and they probably have a special tool to install them but the parts guy told me you can pull and set them with a pair of pliers

I hold the rivet around the pin with needle nose, then grab the pin with linesman and pivot it on the needle nose... takes seconds and makes as clean of a cut as there tool
