Front Fascia Issue
 
http://img.tapatalk.com/4c766dfd-eff5-c6a2.jpgWhat's up everyone?!?,
I just got back from my local Jeep dealership for a quote on repairing my front fascia or appliqué as they call it. The clips that attach it it to the front bumper somehow broke (refer to the red arrows in the pic) at these points. They told me that the clips cannot be repaired and that the whole fascia needs to be replaced. They want $380 (color matched) for the fascia and $150 to put it on. Does anyone have any experience with this issue and can you offer any suggestions? Thanks!!!

find a local body shop and see if they do plastic welding.

i also have that problem...... i have debated taking it off, heating it up with a heat gun and trying to "form it" or bend it in more very carfully

A good quality two sided tape works. That's what holds my 06 SRT facia on.
