Did you have to take the whole skirt off, or did you just squirt silicone down the back of the bits that were coming off?

So with some help from our local dealer, both side skirts were removed, cleaned (skirts and the car's underside), and reattached using silicone.
You'll need a lot of masking tape to do this, or it'll be a mess on your car. The car has to be masked first, then the outside edge of the skirts, then apply silicone to the inside of the skirt along the edges.
Attach the skirts as before, and use more masking tape to keep the skirt evenly in contact with the car's surface. Be sure to clean up any silicone residue on the car's paint immediately. Wipe off excess silicone where the skirt edges meet the car's surface.
Depending on how fast the silicone dries, remove the masking tape and you should have two firmly attached skirts. wink
