I had the clear parking lense cover of my 87GT Fiero just fall off somewhere after being in use for about a year, has anyone else had this problem with theirs? I did not hit anything nor is there any damage to the mounting or basic light structure of the lense itself. I contacted the Fiero store and they are sending me out a new set for no charge although I only needed the one replacement. I love their customer service!!!

I have them on my car, and one of the lenses fell off recently, while I was removing the front fascia. It's not broken or damaged, just the adhesive used was a poor choice and after it's dried out too much the lens simply falls off at the slightest vibration.

I had a similar issue with the FS replacement GT emblem that bolts into the rear bumper molding between the tail lights and the bumper. Poor use of adhesive (it's a 2 part piece) but I simply reapplied it with Right Stuff gasket maker and it's held up well, since. Fortunately, mine simply seperated before I could even install it.

I've had those clear parking lights for probably ten years, and haven't had any trouble with them.

Yes, it's a recurring problem. Gorilla glue will repair it. Same issue with their oil caps. Two segments with only a dab of glue, will fall apart.
