Well, the dealership called me yesterday and said that they had ordered a new charge port protector and would call me when it came in so I could schedule a time to come in and get it swapped out.
They didn't ask me if I wanted to do that, or mention a cost or anything. The Service Manager just looked at the areas that were brittle and flaking away and agreed that it was coming off all by itself, then ordered the replacement, so it looks like this is a warranty repair. (I would think it would be)
Now, I'm just wondering what the end result will be.
I assume the guys in the local shop will have to use a heat gun, or something similar, to remove the old protector, then they've got to put a new one on there. I guess there are guys that do this all the time and know all the tricks. I just can't imagine how you can put a sticker that large onto a car and get it on there aligned properly, with no air bubbles, etc.
I'll update in a few days with the end result.
