Right front fender on my 2008 xB has slipped about a half inch. Tire rubs on inner lining.
1. Somewhat common occurrence or is it just me?
2. Possible warranty itm (please don't laugh)?
3. Simple solutions or do I need to visit the body shop?

Thanks in advance,

BO022-07
Title:
LEFT HAND NO. 2 UPPER
COWL REINFORCEMENT
COVER IMPROVEMENT
Models:
'08 Scion xB
December 22, 2007
Introduction
Some customers may experience a condition where the left hand upper cowl reinforcement cover may become warped due to contact with the rear edge of the hood. A new LH cowl reinforcement is now available to correct this concern. Use the following procedure to improve this condition.
Applicable Vehicles
^2008 model year Scion xB vehicles produced BEFORE the Production Change Effective VIN shown below.

MAKE/MODELS: MODEL/BUILD YEARS:
Scion/XB 2008-2009
MANUFACTURER: Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC.
MFR'S REPORT DATE: September 05, 2008
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER: 08V451000
NHTSA ACTION NUMBER: N/A
COMPONENT: Structure: Body: Hood: Hinge and Attachments
POTENTIAL NUMBER OF UNITS AFFECTED: 64
SUMMARY:
Southeast Toyota is recalling 64 M/Y 2008-2009 Scion XB vehicles installed with the sports grill option and also several radiator grills sold as parts. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, "Hood Latch System." It has been determined that should the primary hood latch be released or fail, the plastic upper radiator grill garnish could release the secondary latch and cause the hood to open.
CONSEQUENCE:
During vehicle operation, this could obstruct the view of the driver possibly cause the hood to strike the roof or the windshield increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Dealers will inspect the sports grill installation and install additional clips to ensure the radiator grill garnish is properly secured. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.
