Problem with city pack

Just wanted to know if anybody with the city pack fitted has had any problem with them coming un stuck?

I got my 59 plate at the end of Sept with the city pack on and straight away i noticed that they started to come away at the outer edges.
Got them replaced and within a day they where coming away so the dealer sent my car to a bodyshop to have them replaced with new ones and now after two weeks i have lost one of the front of my car and the other is coming away at the edges.

No one else had any problems??

I had mine done factory, and mine came unstuck within a few weeks. They took it back and put them back on with something stronger and used their paint cooker thing to form them better, never had a problem since....

thats really poor. Take it back!

I've got the aftermarket version of the city pack and it wont shift for toffee, or the Scottish weather.

Just had a call from the body shop that fitted them on Honda's behalf and they are going to get some new ones and keep my car in over night to make sure they are bonded on correctly. My main gripe is i got the car from a dealer thats 35 miles away so each time I have to go back it costs me money. Any one had any joy in getting compensation for the cost/inconvenience caused as I will have done approx 400 miles because of this.......and at 28mpg it ain't cheap.

Mine are firmly in place after 2 years. I have never seen any with a problem either.

write to honda uk and see if they could do you a nice offer. I mean, its not your fault and the dealers gave your car to a bodyshop thats not very good.

I have similar problem - buth with the front bumper only, all other elements are firmly attached:



It has been fitted at the dealer's workshop - and tomorrow I'm going to make a complaint.
