Hi all,

Just noticed the driver side spoiler is coming loose on the front. Near the wheel well. It moves a bit and looks like its bent. Maybe snow got in there? Should I take it into Honda or will they say its normal. Or will they not cover it under there 3 year warranty?

Dealer installed accessory? If yes, I'd take it in as it should be covered as a warranty item. You mentioned "bent". Sure you hadn't run over some road debris recently and didn't realize it?

No I didn't hit anything. Just the part near he left side front wheel looks not flesh with the body anymore it sticks out a little bit. ( I can feel the rubber on the inside part of the spolier.

Anyone else care to chip in. Top part driver spolier feels bent barely but I have OCD.

They are factory installed accessories and yes you should bring it back to the dealer that installed them. They should stand by their work but will look for a reason to pin it on you.

The underbody spoilers are dealer or DIY installed, not at the factory. Possible that the tape holding the bracket has failed.

But the whole spolier will be failing its just the top half at the front by the wheel well.... Poor design or they installed it wrong...

Another dealer may do the work, but then they would be doing something for free for someone else's mistake (If it was installed wrong). If its a poor design, it shouldn't matter where you bring it. Any pics? I still think they may try to pin it on you but it doesn't sound like a terribly difficult repair.

If they do I'll say that where are the dents in the paint :D

I'm not sure anybody's going to be able to give you any advice here without having any pictures to reference. Once you get some posted, I think we'll be able to offer an opinion. There's a hook that gets taped on in the front, so most likely the tape has come loose, but you'll have to go to your dealer to get it fixed if you're not willing to do it yourself.

Come on man! Post some pics! There may be another solution other than replacing the entire spoiler.
