The first image you see is the original image from the NASA. I adjusted the levels and colour in the images which follow.
The camera is looking at a rock, below the rock in the image is what appears to be a plastic clip. You can see it has a arrow like end to it. It also has what appears to be teeth on the top edge (right part of the object). The question is....what is it from? If it is from the rover, are NASA aware? If it isnt from the Curiosity rover, then where did it come from?

I'm still not sure that equates to "falling apart".
Plus, if you're crafting a vehicle designed to travel from our planet, through space, survive re-entry, land on another planet, cruise around that planet for years taking samples and photographs... and you use a PLASTIC CLIP...?
...you should probably be shot anyway.
