Has anyone had their front side makers fall off?

I should have brought this up 2 years ago but now I'm pissed. When I had my car in for it's very first state inspection the guy doing the job came to me and said " you front side bumper reflector fell off, do you want us to RTV it back on? " I was puzzled to say the least, I looked at said ok. It would have failed otherwise. The plastic seem to have zigzag crack all the way around the mount, strange. A year later, actually earlier this year it happened on the passenger side while waxing my car. It didn't fall out but kind of hung there. Not pleased with this I used RTV on that side. Well this weekend I lost the right side on the highway. I ordered a new one ( $38 ) because I didn't want to make 2 trips too the dealer. So, anyone else loose the reflector?
It look like the plastic hardened to a point that it was brittle and crumbly. Snafu? who knows. I've got 7 mos. left on the 3/36 so we'll see. Good to hear I'm not alone? Maybe. Minor ding to overall quality. It's still ma beby.
