Noticed today one of the rear arch clips has popped off (nothing has hit it).
It was raining so I didn't fiddle with it and wondering what the best technique might be and better to ask before giving it a thump.
Thanks

Thump is appropriate. The rear flares install with clips only.

We should try to find the YT video of them being installed on the production line.

A whole lot of thumping goin' on in that video.

I had to replace a rear flare after a F250 opened a door into one. I don’t believe it’s common.

So did a fair bit of thumping, went back a bit but not fully. Called in local body shop to see what they thought, they had a go and no joy. Decided might be best to take it off and refit whole thing with some some new clips at the ready.

Did you get new clips for yours?

Had a look but can't find part number or what sort they are, is there somewhere better to look than this please:

I reused my original clips, the online parts catalog isn’t very clear what clips are used.

Going to replace the two year old wrap on my flares next week. While everyone is thinking about them, get them covered too! The wrap took an unreal amount of abuse. I’ll take before and after pictures for us next week.
