I installed the 124 Red Emblem onto the front grill (tow hook cover). However, the cover seems very easy to take off and I am worried it is going to fall off while driving.

I felt the same about mine too. As long as it is flush all around in its "hole" It'll be fine. Mine has been in for 2500 miles...still there....

Based on my experience so far, I think it well-attached.
IMO it's more likely to be plucked off the car by some souvenir collector. Like the as***le who stole the Nardi shift knob out of my 2000 Miata SE.
best regards

Mine has been on for 10K plus miles. Assuming you prepared the plastic per the instructions you should be good.

The emblem itself is securely in. It's the entire cover assembly I was worried about - I can take it easily off by hand.

Well, for that matter my grill is still in place as well.

Can you tell me how it comes off that easy, as I have replacement badges and need the upper grill off to get to the fixing nut.
I've looked and it seems fixed solid

I was just referring to the tow cover assembly not the entire grill cover. But it's been over 2000 km and it's still there so I guess it's ok.

Do any of our vendors sell the 124 Red Emblem ? I can't seem to find em. At least no one seems to have em in stock. The one that goes on the front grill.

I've seen these in pictures of people's cars. Are they aftermarket?

Mopar parts, that sounds sort of strange. I grew up knowing that Mopar originally meant MoPar or short for Motor Parts.

Good question. I fitted it to the driver’s side. It’s slightly convex (curves outward) to follow the curve of the solid plastic of the toe hook cover. I don’t know if that curve is the same on both sides or not.
