Flares are attached with plastic fasteners and 3M two sided tape. Looks to me like the tape is giving up and needs to be replaced. The best way is to take the flares off completely, replace any broken fasteners, use the special solvent to clean the paint, then reapply the flares with new tape.

I thought some of them were attached with screws?

The only thing holding your flair in place are fender flair clips and a few screws on the underside of the fender flair the double sided tape is only to hold the soft rubber that is attached to the flair that is to keep most of the dirt from getting into your flair be careful removing your flair because the tabs that hold the clips that snap into your fender break very easily I'm not sure what year Toyota started putting arrows on the flairs but you can see on the flair where the arrow is pointing is where the fender flair clips are if your not sure on how to get it off take it your local dealership body shop and they can assist

Good luck Rob

Don't know exactly how it is on the ac cabs, but I do know you are going to have to take the inner linner out to get to the flares, and its a bitch. They are really not made to come off at all, it ruins the flat tabs. I did'nt care about them when I put on my glass fenders though.
