    Hey,
    So I was cleaning my truck up yesterday and noticed my mud flap only has one screw left in it, and my fender flare is unhooked from about 3-4 clips from the back. I tried resnapping them on but it wasn't hooking up, with further inspection I noticed that the fender flare hooks are all cracked. So now what's one to do? I know you can replace the blue clips that attach to the truck side but these other clips on the fender flare itself look like they are part of the flare, and once broken they're gone type thing. This has to have happened to someone on here. What did you do to fix this? Is there an adhesive that can pull this off? I am pissed off, the fender flare clips are pretty Mickey mouse build if you ask me for an off road truck.....and I am so easy on this truck it's a bit hard to swallow.
    Anyways if someone can help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks

    As far as I'm aware, those clips are molded part of the flare. Unfortunately, its either replace or you can try a high strength epoxy. Wrap the cracked areas in some good ol fashioned duct tape after the epoxy sets and hope for the best. It's behind the box sidewall so no one will see it anyways.

    Another reason Mud Flaps should be removed... they can cause damage! :eek:
    You should be able to remove the flare and then replace all the clips that are broken. The clips are available at the dealer...
