think this will be covered under 3/36000

Attached to the bumper, right below it where the fog lights are on the driver side that piece has shifted down a bit. The corner was hanging of a little bit but I somehow stuck it back into its place. If you look close there is a gap whrere you can see the bracket. On the passenger side everything is nice and tight.

I have not crashed or bumped into anything. The only reason I noticed is was because I was washing the car. Never would have seen it in a million years.

Only concerned because I don't want the piece to get worse as time goes on and my warranty is up

think they will cover it?? Any suggestions

BTW-only 2,000 Miles

That is where the lower air dam can be removed. Look to see if you are missing the removeable twist pin inside the fender well. If not then take it out and push the air dam back into the slot where you show it came out and reinsert the twist pin. It should stay in place.

wheel well? I see no missing pieces, Just looks like it separated a bit. Looks like it should just slide into place but the plastic on the bracket is to short. I pushed it behind it and bent the tab up so it is holding in place but you can still see minor seperation if you look close.

Is something like this covered? No sighn of hitting anything whatsoever

Should be covered, but it doesn't look like there is any actual damage. It just looks like the lower fascia somehow came undone on that corner.

There are seven quarter turn fasteners that hold that piece on. The one in that wheel well may be missing if it doesn't want to stay in place.

Ok, thanks, dealer should be able to fix it pretty quickly from what I am reading. Just need a quarter turn fastner put on most likely

Re: think this will be covered under 3/36000

Mine came off like that when i was backing off a snow mound. Little bit of a PITA but you need to remove the entire thing and put it back on. I tried puching it back in but you cant get the right angle this way.
