the pressure of the clip is what actually holds the cover on the car, if you tried epoxy and it didn't work prepare to spend the money on new covers or watch them become projectiles off your car one day on the highway''

yes, I am speaking from experience, I repaired a set a long time ago due to a small crack that was forming, they lasted two whole days, I was doing about 70-75MPH on the highway and watched the cover shoot over the car like a damn bullet, good thing no one was behind me

Same thing happened to me, i used epoxy and it worked real good. Except i put about a 1cm thick coat on either side, so it's real strong.

Duct Tape always works wonders.

My clips always break. People used to joke around and try to rip them off at high school. Once i was driving and it came flying off. The best way to fix, 2 sided velcro, works wonders. Tho dont put too much on cuz i did and the velcro was so strong when i got pulled over i couldnt get them off. The sheriff had to help me rip them off and i almost took off my headlight as well. I'm on my second and final set of these things. Velcro is the way to go......
