    That's a good one! Creative minds, and you have to

    have the same color to have it be worthwhile. Got to be kids because cost can't be high.
    New one on me.

    Missing Tow Hook Cover

    This is the second tow hook cover on my bumper that disappeared since January of this year. I don't know if they are falling off or if someone is ripping them off.

    This last time I have a small area near the hole where the paint is chipped. So, I wonder if that means someone pried it off and chipped the paint or a rock hit the area, chipped the paint and caused the cover to fall off?

    This is extremely frustrating having to order these covers from the local garage.

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    New one on me as well but I can imagine it happening. What happened to me was that the cover was flapping around and snapped its retainer while the car rode on the back of a flatbed tow. I can imagine that if this is common, people will gladly pay $20 for a color-matched cover. Junk yards would tend to want to sell the whole bumper cover if it is intact. These covers would be quick and easy to steal, so some kids have a business stealing them. Who knows, perhaps the thefts create a market for the kids stealing them?
