Unhappy For all of you that have morettes

I just installed them today and there is a pretty big gap from the top of the front bumper and I was just wondering if this happened to you guys. You can see into the engine area thats how big the hole is. If you did have this problem how did you guys fix it?

There may be a gap but it shouldn't be that big. Are you sure the tabs on top of the bumper are engaged in the slots in the bottom of the covers?

On my morettes I can see a tab that you shouldnt be able to see. You know how the morettes replace thost two "clips" that are next to the grill. Well on those "clips" theres a little part that pretrudes out to fit into the tab. I can see that tab, hope you guys know what I am talking about. The tab I am talking about looks like a right side up U but more of a boxier shape, and it is annoying the crap out of me, help PLEASE!

Mmmm, there's a gap on mine but it's not noticeable unless you look hard at it. My guess is that you didn't adjust the housing right the first time, try take it out again and re-adjust the screw (make 100% sure they're engaged.) on the side (the part that attach the housing and the bumper.) and see how it goes. Be sure to take your time too. Didn't you got it new or used? If you got it new and it's a manufacture defect; send it back and ask for a new pair. Late.
