We had a tire blow on our 2013 and had to replace the lower skirting, last June. We did what Edd505 did to repair his. We did not have to take of the black strip. Just carefully lifted it up to remove the metal skirt. It was a quick 45 min. job. Taking it off, and replacing it. We also had to put on the decals on the new skirt. Very easy to do.
