Replacing Clio3 front near side wheel arch liner

Hi

I have to relate the front part of the near side front wheel arch liner on a Clio3. ( collision with a badger removed it! )

I've ordered the replacement part plus some fixings.

Is it an easy enough job?

Thanks in advance ***128578;

When you get your new one, you will see it is straight forward.
You will need to jack the car up, and take the wheel off, for ease of access .

One of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody; unless you are in prison.

Thanks for that.

I'd hoped it would be simple but having memories of having to get a headlight replaced on a Megane in the past, I feared the worst.

Nice to know even I might manage it.

Cheers!

Biggest problem likely to find is if any old fittings left in.
Not sure what holds them on the Clio but some of the push in ones can be a PITA to remove.
Offer up the new one and double check before putting any fixings in.

Can you not just turn fr wheels to full lock (left or right) to get access? Instructions for removing front bumper say so - mind you not complete arch removal I don't think.
