If you are refering to the piece of plastic under the front bumper, a quick fix is to drill out some holes along side the rivits and place zip ties through the hole. The factory rivets are not strong enough to hold the pressure of the plastic. I am surprised its not covered under warranty?

I have the same problem and it bothers me because I don't know when the whole piece will drop out. My 97 is under warranty but will soon be up. Anyhow, I doubt it's on the warranty and if it is, it'll be hard to proof because you'll have scratch marks on the undercarriage anyway. I'd recommend a few ties but not in access because they did design it to fail at certain force limits, otherwise the plastic curved piece holding the break duct and that undercarriage plactic will break since it's only held on at a few points. You would end up with more to change. I am also quite frustrated at this problem. I'll drill a few holes to fix mine.
