    My wife's 2012 Charger Srt-8 had this problem. The flimsy black honeycomb insert started to warp in the sun, and all the clips broke off. Luckily I noticed before it came flying out and scratched up the car.

    The dealer installed a new one, but this one is starting to do it also.

    Well the honeycomb part in it is alright. The whole insert part flew out. It wasn't warping or anything, I guess it just got brittle and broke. I was so thankful that it landed in a median instead of in traffic. This stupid thing is 250 bucks without paint.

    Put it in tonight. The clips aligned perfectly, and my retrofitted bolts worked perfectly with some washers. Silicon around the edges. I don't think this thing is coming off anytime soon.

    Update. I cruised around on the freeway at about 70. Good thing was that it didn't come off haha. I drove for about 10 minutes.

    Last time it ripped off at about 55. So I know I did something right. Haha

    How is your repair holding up? I've noticed mine is loose and popping up a little in the front (side closer to the front of truck).
