So...let me get this straight? Nevermind????

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

I thought those were odd too and was wondering how they hold up. Maybe a hydrophobic coating of some sort would prevent puddling if it's an issue. There's some neat stuff out there that goes on clear.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Hey guys good news and bad news.
Bad news: They don't make plastic replacements for the rear.




Good news you buy plastic replacements for the front. http://wap.ebay.com/Pages/ViewItem.a...113746&sflag=1


These felt liners do hold and trap a considerable amount of water. I removed one once and washed both sides with a hose and a brush and the weight felt like it tripled because dof all the water it absorded.


I am still deciding whether i will try some roll on bedliner paint or if I will just buy the fronts and hope they make some matching rears sometime soon.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Going plastic will likely make things a bit noisier in the cabin. I would keep the OEM and use a coating. Bedliner would not be my first choice though. You need these to be flexible for removal and fog light maintenance. I've seen the puddling issue mentioned with all the snow lately. I'd still lean toward doing a hydrophobic spray... just make sure you remove the wheels and cover everything, especially the brakes.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

What type of hydrophobic coating did you guys have in mind.


Never wet is a joke!.


Changing the fronts won't have such a large effect on cabin noise as changing the rear liners.


I guess some old school rubberized under coating may be the way to go.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

This stuff seems promising

http://www.amazon.com/Tarrago-Highte...ds=hydrophobic

There was another industrial version I found earlier in the year but couldn't find a use for it at the time... and of course I can't remember what it was called. Getting old sucks.

Seems like that water repellent spray I use on my suede/cloth shoes and some of my hats.

all of those products do form a barrier to water but severe exposure requires a maintenance does and that wouldn't solve the wheels well issue.

I bought two cans of rustoleum bedliner paint yesterday hopefully by weekend I can test my theory and see how well it sticks to this felt.

Cool, let us know how it goes.

My understanding of hydrophobic sprays is that the biggest weakness is UV degradation. I was thinking being in the wheel well would minimize that. Maybe I'll get bored and test one out too.
