    trim plate just below headlight

    I just noticed that I lost the small trim plate that is just below the front headlight. Has anyone else had the issue of these popping out and is it an easy replacement?

    I believe it is part number: 61677001705 (left) or 61677001705 (right). # 3 in the diagram. $34.77. I lost one of mine once and it was replaced by the dealer.

    Thanks. Is there a better way to seal the cover so it cannot fly off again since it looks like this is a common occurrence?
