Wheel arch 'eyebrows'
My father has a new HRV automatic, which he is quite pleased with, except for the apparently flimsy fitting of the plastic 'eyebrows' over the rear wheel arches. Whilst travelling on one of his local main roads into Birmingham (Quinton Expressway), a pothole caused one to fall off. He retrieved it, and took it back to his supplying dealer, who admitted that he had seen several in the workshops with similar problems, and that the plastic retaining pegs were not up to the job. It was refitted with some form of metal fixing, but only the one that had fallen off. How widespread is this problem? How many are falling off?
