    I had to get my wheel flare on my driver side replaced on my 2017 Tacoma due to someone hitting it and it is separating because they didn’t use the same OEM adhesive. Does anyone know what kind of adhesive was used to keep the wheel flare fixed or what I could use that would work well?

    Take it back and make them fix it correctly.

    I’ve already tried and he told me they don’t have adhesive on them. Just a rubber piece to prevent rattling. I don’t know if I believe him because my other ones seem like they have adhesive that seals them to the body

    I used some 3m 5952 VHB in black recently for some other stuff, that stuff is super strong.

    Plus the black would blend better with the black flares.

    Stupid or liar? (them, not you!) I HATE dishonest/lazy hack shops that take advantage of innocent consumers that put their trust in them as "the experts".

    I replaced my front flares on my 2016; one new flare, and repaired & repainted the other. So no internet expert here, you could say I know of which I speak.

    Factory flares have adhesive tape on them, 3 different pieces on each of the front flares. You can look it up online at a parts house like Camelback, take a copy of the diagram to them with the part#s, and tell them to fix it properly. Here's the part numbers from my order from Camelback. Prices are Camelback prices, parts fit either side;

    53851-04100 - 13D6 PAD, FR WH - $1.58
    53853-04070 - 13D7 PAD, FR WH - $9.47
    53855-04010 - 13D7 PAD, FR WH - $11.36


    And politely demand an apology from the shop, since you had to do their job for them, the job you paid them a LOT to do.

    Harumph!
