Wheel arch liner
« on: October 07, 2019, 02:55:35 PM »
I cleaned out the bit you can see with the front door open, where the wheel arch joins the sill and a few miles later it was full again.
What's the answer to stop it happening?

I can't believe that this car has such a ridiculous fault and no one has a solution! :smiley:

You need to remove the liner and clean it out properly

Yeah,thanks I gathered that but it just fills right up again.
 Is there a way of stopping it, how does it get in?

The part of the arch liner fix fixes to the start of the sill sits in line with the edge of the arch unlike the rest of the liner which sits inside the arch.

Mud and leaves.
When I got it I cleaned it out and it was pretty much compost.
