    Rear Fender Clip Issue

    I noticed on the rear fender that it wasn't in all the way so I popped it back into place but doesn't match the other side I can't figure out why the clip won't go in all the way

    Pictures showing the location and extent of the issue would help us diagnose.

    Loosen this bolt and push the fender in while tightening it

    It's by the wheel, on the other side it looks like it's pushed in, on this side I push it in and comes back out even though it's clipped in.

    The whole bottom piece feels loose, both sides don't line up I remember what it use to look like before the way it looks pushed in I thought it looked weird at first

    There is a bracket attached to the rear quarter that has molded in clips. A picture of that bracket is below. You will need to pull your wheel well liner away from the fascia to see if the top of your fascia is seated in these molded clips. The fascia tends to flex instead of snapping in like it should.
