2008 front lower valance

Has anyone had issues with lower front valance coming loose (unclipped) after driving at highway speeds? Mine becomes loose at 2-3 clips just outside of lower grill opening. Normal driving around town it does not do this. Thanks in advance for any help..

Yes, I have the same problem. Rough roads & potholes will spring it loose. It's as if the locking tabs and/or their corresponding slots are worn and will not hold. I haven't taken it to anyone to look at yet.

I ended up putting a small piece of masking tape on the tabs and it has been holding ever since.

Re: 2008 front lower valance

Did you just put the tape on the locking side of the tab that hooks onto the slot of the bumper cover?

Re: 2008 front lower valance

correct. I just added a small piece of tape onto/over the locking tab. just enough to cause slight resistance to re-insert into the bumper cover. I also only did the 2 most inboard tabs.

Tim, I did as you suggested (I used duct tape though) and it's been a week-and-a-half with no slippage. Thanks for the tip.

Re: 2008 front lower valance

In a pinch you can slip a penny under the tab and then slip it back in... Ask me how I know. Haha
