Hi Friends,

One of my front whell arch liners has a 12 x 6 inch hole. Does anyone have experience / recommendations with respect to repairing a wheel arch liner (or where to get hold of a replacement one)?

12x6 inch hole!  not much liner left in that.  Try asking elizP or the batman for an OEM one.  There's also a chap on the facebook group (Hercules parts) making composite liners

Hi,

Yes, I have experience of this. Not economically viable to repair. I threw mine in the bin and was lucky enough to purchase some replacements. However, they are rare and expensive to source...

Good luck!

Jon

You can buy mgf liners and cut up to patch if needed. Or any old arch liner

If your bodging pieces together try melting the plastic pieces together with a old soldering iron.. worked on a few small holes I had in wheel arch liners..
