Fenderwell Crack

Hi,

My civic is just 3 weeks old and I noticed that I have cracks where the fenderwell connects to the body (please refer to the pictures). As you can see the left fenderwell liner is now warping since the screw is not holding onto the fenderwell liner. I took it to the dealer and they said they can replace it under warranty for me. Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem...the only thing I can think that caused the cracks is when the dealer removed the mudguards from the car.

No I did not hit anything, it appears that after the dealer removed the mudguards, someone tighten the screws too hard and so the plastic started to crack. If I hit something, the fenderwell liner would be worst than that. I checked and everything else looks fine.

Bingo! That is what I thought when I saw them. Take it back to the dealer and tell them you want new fender wells.
