Mounting Rear Wheel Arch Liner

Recommended Posts

I have just bought and mounted rear wheel arch liner and thought I should share it with you all here.

Why?

To cut out noise from rear wheel arch and to protect the area from rust.

What do I need?

A pair of rear wheel arch liner from here or any other place that has it. It gets wedged nicely in place and then is screwed at 6 points along the plastic edge.

How do I mount it?

I used these screws. These are used to fix the plastic liner to the plastic part of the car body. No contact with the car metal part.

Yes, attached.

I didn't know these existed. Let us know how you get on with them. The only watchout would be for road muck accumulating behind them which could cause corrosion problems down the road.

Isn't it cheaper just to turn the stereo up ;)

That's what I've been doing for the last 5 years.

That applies to almost all wheel arch liners and besides I treated the wheel arch with anti rust last year.

I went out to drive today and i genuinely feel that the noise from the rear of the car and the exhaust sound has decreased.

I paid something like 60 pounds total for two liners and postal charges to Sweden. It should cost the same for UK, I guess.

It may be a good idea to wash the wheel arch and dry and then spray some antirust spray before mounting the liner on the wheel arch. I pushed the liner in place (it wedges itself in situ), checked alignment of the outer rim, the alignment of the front and the rear end of the liner and the position of the plastic hooks on the liner itself and then used a small thin drill to make a pre hole before I screwed in the self drilling screws. As I mentioned earlier, screws to the plastic part of the wheel arch only.
