Re: Wheel arch liners - important??

You might struggle for access, tbh.

Even jacked-up, there will only be a small opening between tyre & arch, which won't really be enough space to see what you're doing, far less wield a tool.

I work on the principle that if I can pry away enough of the liner to get access, I'll keep the wheel in situ.

But if its further up in the panel, I will remove the wheel, and take the liner out completely, as the time spent doing that, is more than saved by the added access in removing & refitting.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
