Is the clip relatively easily removable? Or is it the type that nearly or does break at every removal?
- Just curious.

Not sure if the clip would break, because if what I think happened to mine is correct, the adhesive (I don't know if it was glue or tape) holding clip on the side touching the car failed.

Now I'm wishing I had taken pictures...

Found a picture!

Now that I see that picture again, it may be the rear clip that the adhesive came off of, because it got yanked off by my dad when the trim was dangling on the side of the car.

Agree....apparently this has happened enough that Scion should be notified. Has anyone reported the issue to Scion USA?

i show the part numbers have updated in the system from original. Maybe they've been redesigned.

That is what I discovered as well when our jack failed. If there are additional part numbers for the same "part", it is usually because there has been an issue with the original design that resulted in a redesign. Hopefully my son won't have a problem but if he does it is great to know that Scion may be cognizant of the issue already. Good thread.

FWIW I decided to email Scion to let them know about this issue and pointed them to this thread.

Here is their response:

It could be they will really look into it, or not. Or, as suggested above, they've already taken care of it. I figured it couldn't hurt though.
