    Hey Guys, This morning I walked to leave out in my X & the left side front air effects had come unsnaped almost laying on the drive way ! I snaped it all back on , but the center joint is not staying together right.
    Guess I will have to put some kind of allienment scab on the back side of it.
    Has anyone else had this happen ?

    Yes, and you can buy the clips that hold them at the stealership, They arent very expensive.

    Got under there & found several of those plastic ribbits that holds everything on broken or totally gone. I also noticed that several of those wedge locking clips on the effects were getting loose. So I cleaned 'em off good & pushed everything in tight & run a little bead of hot glue on the inside.
    That ought to hold everything together.

    Clarification;
    I replaced all those broken or missing plastic pop rivets. I only
    hot glued on the wedge clips.
