Default Fender flare clips

Was wondering how hard it is to replace a flare body clip. One popped on the drivers side cause it is so freaking cold here -21 in the day -25 at night. Was going to fix in the summer, at the moment keeping it very clean.

Depends. The fender flairs are held on by a combo of clips AND double-sticky tape. A PITA to remove (without breaking MORE clips) and re-install.

Give thought to using a small amount of strategically placed adhesive in lieu of removing the trim.

Overlay the crap out of it w/masking tape to secure it overnight.
