What ever you do, DON'T use a scraper or any other tool. Take your time with it and scrub with goo gone and it will come off! Easy peasy

But on a side note...why did the louver start to fall off? Manufacturer or installer error?

Holy cow! They expand and contract that much? A inch is quite a big deal...

Spray some adhesive/grease remover and let it soak in for a while. Use your thumb to roll it off

Nah. He's just saying an inch of adhesive has come loose. Wonder if they stick better if you let them heat in the sun before install... seeing as they're already expanded at that point and will contract/expand closer to the rate of the car.

My car is black so I used some black silicon to fill the cracks and hold it on. I'm sure clear silicon would work well on all color cars. It's so thin u can't even notice its there. Just a option to help hold it on

Thanks for the help everybody! And it just started getting a little loose so I decided I would re-do it over risk if flying off
