Default Inner fenderwell problems?

My buddy's cam'd V had a problem with his front inner fenderwells flying out at high speeds. He said this last one came out at 130. I was just wondering if anyone else had come across this problem as I've never heard of it.

Only thing I can think of is they were taken out and not put in correctly or werent fastened correctly.

my passenger side is gone.
more than likely those tabs holding the push pins are broke or not all there.

I would check those.

dealer did a good job of hiding that one from me. did not notice they were toast until after I lost my inner fender.

Mine is lose on my drivers side. I looked and it seems the tab holding it has broken...those little plastic tabs are junk in my opinion...the ones on my rear bumper broke as well!

Both side of mine are shattered. It looks like they were loose and then caught on the tire when turning.

I have a stock cam and don't have a problem with the fender lines coming out. It must be the cam.

Will an after market exhaust make my fenders fly off? I'm thinking about buying an exhaust, cutouts, or doing a muffler delete and I need to be a post ***** to see if any are for sale here...
