Ran into this issue as well. After thinking about it a little more it may have been a result of us running it on the beach.... fun BTW. Just thought the Foz had more clearance.... Have yet to call Suby to get the pieces as funds have not allowed for it. And the salvage yards are soaked.

^Yeah some of mine are broken as well.

I've just used zip ties before as a temporary fastener until I had the correct clips. It's not the end of the world if you take those little spoilers off either. I think the main function of them is to direct air around the tire to slightly improve efficiency.

I've driven many miles with and without them installed with no noticeable difference in economy.

Ok, got a funny'ish story.

So for the past year or so I've been tracing down av "evap code".... tried the cap, replacing the hoses on the canister, etc....

Then yesterday.... we stop and I fill up..... she says "why did you only fill it up to $34.05?

I said "well, because the pump clicked".

So she goes on to say "I fill it up to the very top... like click,pump,click,pump,click,pump till the very top".

Needless to say, I felt like Wayne Brady and was "gonna have ta slap a %$#@!"

.... who does that and not tell me after I've been tracing it down..... dammit.

Ok, I'm adding links to this evap issue I'm having with this car. Although, I'm not having the fill-up issue noted in the thread.

I did not try this to fix this hose when I did the "clean out" a couple months ago.

Will update once I get under there again.

Sad to say, the Foz is gone.... apparently the center diff and rear diff had to be replaced.... had some binding start to pop up.... parts alone weren't cheap ($2400),something I wasn't willing to spend on a car with 110K on the clock. Took it right away back in June 2014 to get a 2014 Mazda 3 for the wife. Nice ride and in 5 months the Speed 3 will be paid off. I'll take over the mz3 and she can get what she wants. Nice 30K I had with it, just couldn't afford the upkeep on it along with the premium fuel at just over 20mpg on the hwy..... I think my days are done for subies... but may be back one day soon.

Nice to hear that you worked yourself into a good deal on the trade and purchase. You will be missed!
