Fender flares falling off

Anyone else having issues with their fender flares? I bought a
2015 Grand Cherokee Summit and the passenger flare on the front is coming off. Also looks like the rear is lose too. Are these just stuck on? Looks like double sided tape to me. Bummer on a 52k vehicle.

Yes, a lot of discussion here and elsewhere about this problem. WK2 SRTs also have the problem. My '14 had a problem with the right rear flare, took it to a Jeep dealer who said it was a frequent problem. They said they used wider tape than the factory to fix it and it should hold.

Heat it up with a hair dryer and stick it back on. Tape it down with painters tape overnight and it should hold till a dealer can fix it.

Re: Fender flares falling off

Common issue. When I was searching for my new High Altitude I specifically passed on a couple of them because there was ever so slight peeling of the flares already....still new sitting at the dealership. I knew those would get worse so I waited till I found one with the flares all sitting flush and tight at the corners.
Like Scott said try that method, otherwise there isn't much you can do short of peeling them off and applying new automotive double sided tape. Even that isn't easy as the old tape is very hard to get off and the lower portions are held in with clips which break easy. It's pretty much a dealer fix.

Re: Fender flares falling off

Yeah...mine took 3 attempts to get fixed on the SRT. Ended up getting sent way from jeep to a panel shop...they did it right in the end - all under warranty. A small but annoying problem.

Re: Fender flares falling off

So no problems getting this fixed under warranty? My Summit has had flare line-up problems since I bought it and I'd really like them to be perfect. Think I'll have any issue going to a different dealer than I bought it from?

Re: Fender flares falling off

I have one section that just isn't lining up with the rest of the flair (2015 HA) it's going back to the dealer soon.

I know it's technically covered, but I've had dealers deny claims before.

On my 335i, the wastegates would rattle like crazy, which was a common problem. Some dealerships were replacing the turbos, some weren't doing anything. My dealer told me they couldn't replicate the noise, as we were standing next to the running car, wastegates rattling away. When I pointed it out, his response was "oh, that's normal".

Don't have that handy but someone will chime in. Fwiw, they come unpainted so that's a cost too. All 4 of mine on my '14 Summit, Deep Cherry Crystal, were lifting and the dealer boogered them badly peeling them off to use stronger tape so they had to order new and paint them. They layed perfectly BUT metallic paint done at a dealer is a bit*h to match with factory and the flares are now much darker....looks like the wells have mascara
