Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Hi - Has anyone removed the felt wheel well liners? Is there a steel wheel well behind them? Are there plastic liners from an older wk2 available that would fit?

I've thought of removing mine - those things are like huge sponges; when it rains they hold water & then they slowly discharge it all in my garage.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

They look like they would but I've never known mine to hold water. And mine get packed with snow. I believe they're made out of recycled plastics.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Well, I've been in my garage working on other vehicles and watched the water dripping out of the liners. I didn't measure what came out, but it always pools in the low spots of my garage and creates a mess. I've never had another car that did that. Not coincidentally, this is the first vehicle I've ever owned with felt wheel well liners.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

LOL... they look like felt, they may feel like felt but they aren't felt.

I don't notice any more water pooling on my garage floor with these than the liners I've had in any other vehicle.

Well I had put buckets under the dripping liners. About 2 quarts of water came out. That is a lot of water on a somewhat level garage floor.
I replaced two liner, that did not help. If I come home in rain or wet roads I do not drive the car into the garage for an hour or put the buckets under the liners. I got tired of driving the car back out of the garage and mop the floor.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Maybe you can spray them with FlexSeal.

Bahahaha! Good one, Bill! I'd do that to mine, but I used up all my FlexSeal on my screen doors. Can't see out of them now, either.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

I suspect that the material used is to provide greater sound abatement from a key road-noise source...the tires.
