I don't know. I've had the car only since March, and the cover just came loose. I expected to find broken pieces like clip nuts, black plastic remnants of the brackets that broke, but nothing. Weird. Maybe, just maybe, it's been loose like that since I bought the car, but never was displaced enough for me to notice until yesterday.
