The fender flares are attached to the body of your truck via clips. Regularly check the integrity of these mounting parts. Because they are usually hidden away from view, try to gently rock the fender flares to see if they are still intact. If even a small space shows up, then a clip might be damaged. Depending on how bad the damage is, you can just replace the clip or get a fender flare replacement for the damaged one.

Washing your fender flares with clean water is always the first step of getting rid of dirt and other particles that are sticking on your panels. Spray a steady stream at an angle to be able to loosen the dirty layer. For very light layers of dirt, a quick rinse should be enough. But for heavier layers, you should not stop with just washing it water.
- Scrub your fender flares.
To thoroughly clean your fender flares, scrub your fender flares with a sponge. Gently apply until the dirt is gone.
