crome dingy's peeling...

The chrome peices that adorn the vent holes on the side panels are coming off on my 06 LT. I would imagine that this is a warranty item but I am wondering if this is common. The crome seems to be a pressure fit but it is as if they whant to straighten themselves off. Is there a soutable solution short of replacing the panel?

Appreciate your comments as usual...

Mauro

I had the same problem with my 05 LT and took it to the dealer. They suggested using some black ATV and clamps. I did that and have had no problem since. Quick and easy fix.

Re: crome dingy's peeling...

I will second the question on the black ATV and let me also know where to get what ever it is. I do not see it as a big job but would like to do it right which does not always mean taking it to the dealer.

Thanx for your replys...

Re: crome dingy's peeling...

yup.. they only use a few spots of glue. You can use epoxy... to glue the shiny parts back on..

The black RTV (room temperature vulcanizing) is a stick, flexible option.

Re: crome dingy's peeling...

My mistake: I used the black silicone adhesive sealant, which can be bought at any auto parts store. I tried using super glue, but it still came off. No problems since using the silicone. Just use small clamps and leave on overnite.

Re: crome dingy's peeling...

I'm on my second set it seems the new ones are made the same as the old ones in 05, I guess sence these parts are so cheap compared to the FD no one makes much of a fuss over it. I'll get mine replaced before the warranty is over in April at my next service. Until then I'm using some small black zip ties to hold them together its not something you notice much no mess either.
