    The other day I noticed the fender flare around my rear driver side wheel was hanging about an inch loose away from the body of my truck in the front nearest the ground. When I looked closer I saw there was about a quarter size chip in the plastic flare and the black liner between the body and flare was hanging loose as well. I have no idea what caused the damage. My truck is black and with the damage being near the bottom it's very hard to see. My truck is new, only 5k miles and 4 months old... What do you think I should do?

    1. Take it to the dealer and see if they'll replace it for free? I know... Fat chance!

    2. Take it to the dealer and see how much a new fender flare would be and have them install a new one. It appears this is all I would need.

    3. Get some black silicon and use the silicon to adhere the flare back to the body of the truck and use some clear tape to hold it secure until the silicon dries and strengthens.

    Another option?

    my fender flares also came lose. they are attached by these little plastic clips on the inside so you might be able to just push it back in. but mine broke, so i just used some double sided tape, and super glue. it works perfectly
