On the drivers side of my car, I am losing the little clips or fasteners that hold the wheel well together.. Has anyone else experienced this? I only have 2500 miles on my car.. This is a little concerning to me..

Haven't experienced this (yet). Odd that it's drivers side only (?). Could they have been missing on that side since original delivery? Or impacted by other accessory install?

No I'm weird about those things haha.. I looked my car over big time when I got it and almost every day at work.. I am not sure what caused them to come out.. The only thing I can think of is they could have POSSIBLY come out at the car wash though I have never encountered that with other cars I have taken there. I would hope that they are in there a little tighter than that..

If the fasteners are holding in the other three wheel wells, it seems like worth re-trying the OEM fasteners at least once more before finding an alternate replacement (?).

It's worth a trip to the dealer. They shouldn't fall out - even at a car wash. You're under warranty - take Honda up on it.

I went today and they put them back on immediately. The tech told me he has only seen it happen one other time. His thought was maybe they didn't cinch them up at the factory on accident (since one on each wheel well was already tight they may have started and were distracted?) .. At least it's not a critical area..
