Default Odd problem inside the wheel well

The other day on highway I started lot wind noise the cabin. So when I got home looked around and found that plastic insert in the wheel weel on front driver had falllen down. Opun closer inscpection found the all four screw had rusted out. The odd part about this is the no rust in the area other the screws. Put new ones so it better just thought it was kind of odd.

I have not taken to the body shop but their is evdenice that would support it the headlight had different screws it. When I got her one side was shiner then the other but i used 3m product that helps clean both side so both have same shine. So I am thinking you both are right
