had a problem with these collapsing, front wheel arches only as they are made of a different material, they have a stud holding the front & back of the arch but not at the top and there is nothing to retain them. All other new GTI owners please check and report this as peugeot dont have a solution at the moment.

noticed mine when iwas cleaning the car, if you run your fingers on the inside of the arch at the 12 o`clock position you can feel a split in the material that seems to be the weak point. I am sure they will come up with a remedy though. Happy ew car btw.

No pictures now its been repaired suggest keeping away from car wash jet sprays especially around the wheel arches!

Ok found a fast
fix for this. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />



Where the tear on
the wheel liners is, i put a tiny hole on either side and put a small cable tie
to connect each side and pulled it tight, this lifted the liner back into
place.

This should hold
until I can get the car to a dealer and have looked at.

When you had your
liners replaced, did you notice any changes on the new liners. Was there
anything to stop this from happening again?
