We've had three fusions and all three have had a problem with the black side panels coming loose and flapping around. Its quite expensive to replace especially as all four become loose after time. Im getting to the point of just super gluing the things into place.

Any one else had this or are we just jinxed lol

Do you mean the external pillar trims?
On the Focus there is a triangular panel in front of the external mirror base.
It covers a wing bolt and tends to warp over time pulling the clips out.
I move the clips around periodically to allow for any warping or pulling.

Yes those are the ones right in the middle though it looks like the glue that connects the clips to the panel is just worn out. I'll have another look at a panel that's still solid. :)

Always had same problem as the OP, they're just cheap clips holding them onto the car.. Mines now stuck on with Double-Sided sticky tape to strengthen it up and that's worked perfect over the last few years!
