Hello, has anyone had this issue with their Pilot?? We purchased brand new 2018 Pilot last year. Just now the right side Reverse light was dangling.(towards bottom part of bumper) It was literally coming off. I took it to the dealership. They wanted over $800 to fix it. They said warranty doesnt cover it, bc they are saying it may be my fault. I am a carful driver. I didnt hit anyting. There are no scartches, dents, literally on the bumper etc.
Is this part just fitted flimsyly?? Is this Manufacturer defect??

We’ve had the exact same issue with our 2018 Pilot EX. We purchased it used and discovered this soon after taking position. Car fax has indicated the vehicle was involved in an accident but gives no details. The rear bumper shows no damage yet the tabs where the reverse light housing attaches to the bumper are broken on the bumper side. Requiring the entire bumper to be replaced. The dealership said the exact same thing to us. That we must’ve caused the damage and therefore the cost of replacement would 100% fall on us. I’m likely going to use some resin like glue to fix it myself, but I believe this might be a defect that should be a recall and free fix.

To the OP, do you mean the light housing or the actual light itself? In Canada we drive lots of gravel and have noticed rocks can beat it up pretty bad causing the light to smash and fall out. Never had the whole housing fallout however.
