Wheel Wells WK2

I am still pretty confused about how to clean these suckers. On all my cars previous the wells were a hard black plastic. Not anymore with the WK2. Pressure washer is an easy answer but, what if you don't have one? How do you clean your hairy wheel wells?

Re: Wheel Wells WK2

Shampoo and a comb? I've grown fond of the insulated fender liners.

I like them too but cleaning... what if the shampoo and comb don't work the first time? Rinse and repeat?

Re: Wheel Wells WK2

If shampoo doesn't do the trick, some All Purpose Cleaner will take care of any stubborn spots.

Re: Wheel Wells WK2

We usually use a cleaner, such as Optimum Power Clean, paired with an EZ Detail Brush to remove some of the stuck on dirt, etc. A power washer surely helps after the brushing, but sometimes if it gets too dirty you'll surely have to lift it and/or remove the wheels to really brush it with a stiffer brush and clean it out well. I have found the key is to clean often enough so it doesn't get in too bad of a state.

Hope that helps a bit!

Re: Wheel Wells WK2

I use some APC like Optimum Power Clean with Mothers Fender Well Brush, putting QL on offroad1 or 2 would help if the wells are really filthy...
Recently I started coating everything on my JGC to add some protection and make cleaning easier & faster, already done with Opti-Coat 2.0 for paint and chrome parts and Opti-Glass coating for all glass including the panoramic roof, next is CQuartz Dlux on the plastic grill and running boards and finally I'll put some CQuartz Fabric Coating on my wheel wells.
I think a good carpet protection product would work as well.

I'd be careful with the power washer unless it is one of those coin op or designed for automobiles.

A more serious power washer can easily remove or damage the coating unless you use one of the lower pressure nozzles designed for washing cars. Can also remove decals, loose trim, etc.
