Front of Driver Side TRD Side Skirt is Coming Loose
Like it says, the front of my driver side TRD skirt looks like its coming loose.. What can I do? I looks like maybe a screw might have come loose or something I can't really tell..A friend suggested "Liquid Nails" I guess that is some sort of adhesive. Any other suggestions?

Not yet, I got my car from a dealership in Florida and I'm in Louisiana.

It doesn't matter. If it was a dealer or factory installed kit, it's covered by the warranty. Take it to the nearest dealer.

Use 3m Exterior molding & trim tape (the grey foam stuff, available at most auto parts stores) it's the same stuff the dealership uses when they mount them, cut a small piece the length of that front tab that's come unglued, clean both surfaces Inside of skirt and on the car's sheetmetal with rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or soft rag. press the foam tape onto the back of the side skirt, over the existing adhesive tape, and then, peel the backing, and press it onto the car. I've fixed both sideskirts using this method. the new tape will be wider than the stock tape, so just stick it on low enough that the top edge is lined up with the old tape, and you'll be fine.

I suppose i'll need to do this again, as the last bit of factory tape came loose on the rear part of the passenger side skirt, all my repaired areas are sticking firm and have yet to come loose.

BTW, don't use liquid nails, that's just plain retarded! it sticks great, and is very useful, but if down the road you need to replace a side skirt due to damage, you will regret it (liquid nails is a hard product to remove from anything!)

Its coming loose not dragging the ground or anything like that. I dont think it is worth taking to the dealer if I can use Rave's method.(Thanks Rave) I'll try and post some pics when I get home so I can show you guys just what I'm talking about.

PS: Its a Photo Chopped Dodge SRT-4 "Not just a Neon"
