Has anyone else noticed the rear lower fascia (2019 Elantra GT N-line) to not be secured. Mine has some play in it and makes some clunking noises when moved. I also attribute it to the same sounds when going over slight bumps. Haven't made it to the dealership t see what they say yet. Not worried it is going to fall off or anything but just seems it should be a tighter fit.

Mine does exactly the same thing, Keep us posted with your dealer response.

By "lower rear fascia," are you referring to the part below the bumper?

Dropped by local dealership today. Was told that the looseness is normal.
Has anyone had the opportunity to get under their car and see how this panel is mounted?

I wonder if a dab of glue of some kind would keep the connectors from loosening. If for some reason the fascia needed to be removed or replaced, the plastic connectors could just be cut off.

ArtnAle's dealer response is typical. They just don't want to deal with the situation because it is not in their warrantee hourly charge back schedule.

Mine does the same. I noticed when I was under there installing mud flaps. I figured it has something to do with low speed impact resistance but the amount of movement was surprising.
