Front part of arch meets front lip

Not sure if that is an accurate description of the area I'm talking about. But the part where they join on one side has come apart slightly. I've attached a picture:

Not sure if it's the same issue as this:

Arches???????

Anything I can do about this? I can live with it, but if it's an easy fix, then I'll do it. Car is still under warranty, but not sure if I've done it or not.

It just clips in buddy, either the clips have broken or its just come apart, they ain't the best of designs, took me a while to get mine clipped together properly when changing my front splitter.

Push the front splitter in toward the engine whilst also applying pressure backwards and it should just pop in.

Thanks mod How can I tell if the clips are broken?


Is this sort of thing covered by the warranty?

Thanks Sam. Yeah I'm doing that, it goes in but pops back out. Only really tried quickly this morning. Will try properly later.

What this man said, and i doubt they will cover it under warranty tbh, if it doesn't pop back in try and live with it, doesn't look like its sticking out too bad tbh.

That's cool. It's not sticking out much at all. So I could live with it.
