Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

Sorry no one has helped so far, others may have thought this was a hard concern to address online. I believe I can help if help is still needed. Just reply and let me know.

I still need help I haven't received an answer. The right side rear reflector has come lose and I haven't been able to figure out how it is held in place. How do you put it back in place so it does not shake/move around.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 3 months ago.

Here is a diagram showing how the rear reflector is secured and held to the bumper.

If the screws are tight then that is not to blame. You may need to add some clear silicone around the reflector to make it hold tighter.

Please follow up so you get everything from me that you expected from the deposit you have already paid, which I get nothing of till you rate me. Rating does not close the post nor prevent replying at a later date.

Thanks Moose
