Gaps between Wheel Arch Molding and body
Yes, the gaps are on the rear sections of the rear moldings which are not detaching. I haven't seen any dirt so far accumulate there but I agree they should be tight against the body of the car for maximum protection. It is the front section of the driver's side rear wheel arch molding which is detaching.
We are thinking of getting another Forester and this time will not order the wheel arch moldings. Incidentally, the moldings were factory installed.
