    Hello,

    I had a little mishap this weekend while backing up a trailer. The rear passenger side fender flair was cut through. I'm hoping if I take it off, I can repair it. Has anyone taken off a fender flair before? If so, is it a tough job and will I be able to get it back on?

    Thanks!

    Yes. They are held on with plastic snaps. Make sure to pick new ones up as you will probably break them taking the flair off. Also I’d get the little black trim piece that goes between the flare and body. It’s not that bad.

    YouTube is your best friend. There’s a few video explaining how exactly. If you wanted to avoid breaking the clips, pull your fender liner

    Leave them off! The previous owner of mine removed them and I kinda like the look anyways
