Has anyone had a problem with the rubber trim between the body and the flares coming out/twisting? Mine is coming out at certain points around the car and while I can push it back in it doesn't stay there. It can also be easily dislodged if I hit it with the hose when washing. Any ideas of how to fix it?

Thanks.

I used superglue to put mine back in, seems to work. I glued only were the rubber touches the flare not the paint.

bloody annoying isn't it .. have to shove mine back in after every reasonable trip down the highway.
I was thinking either glueing it or black sikaflex ..

Same problem except mine have gone brittle and break when i try to push them back. Clark rubber stuff looks good. Some guy on ebay is selling tubing for SLR5000 flares maybe this would fit?

I was just having the same problem here. So Clark Rubber has this kind of trim, cool. I rarely go there as Clark Rubber is the biggest rippoff shop ever. If anyone has had success with a/m trim let us know.

same, I dont remember it being as bad as it is now.. went to get some foam rubber, and had to call 000
I thought that was only cause all the stores I go in are run by Apu.
