Well, I'm mad. I went out to the X to go to lunch and what do I see. The decals on my roof rack are like 90% gone. Just peeling off like crazy. What could cause this and can I get new ones?

Mine have been off my rood rack since about 6 months after I got the X. I think the problem lies with the fact that the stickers were not very sticky and the rack tubes have a texture to them.

I just peeled mine off, but I know you can get new ones from the dealer.

The odd thing about mine, the area under the sticker was a much lighter shade of gray.

Mine too. I thought that was wierd. I try and run by the dealer sometime. Maybe I'll just peel them the rest of the way off and not worry about it.

I got mine replaced under warranty, but the dealer said that some stick, and some don't...in other words, if you have a problem with them cracking and pealing off, the replacements will do the same thing...seems to vary from vehicle to vehicle. Sure enough, mine re-pealed within a few days. If yours look shitty, take'em off with a heat gun, and don't bother with replacement.

My X is turning a year old on 3/11 and the stickers have yet to fade. Not even a peel forming or a single crack.

When mine was brand new the left side was already peeling. The dealership replaced both and have had no problems since.

Just passed 2 years...no major problems :headbang:

If you're removing the stickers, don't use a pressure washer, because it will blast the sticker into a million pieces that then stick like glue to anything in a 10 foot radius.
