Get a picture.

You should be removing plastic lining to fit the wheel arch itself

Yes that is the arch lining...

Why has it come off? Was tis when you changed arch?

You should be removing the lining to replace arch really...

If it won't forcefully push in, remove lining compleltly and start again

I took the old arches off without removing the arch lining which is why the clips broke.

How can you remove the arch lining vegas? I should have 4 arches coming in a few days so will hae to remove all 4 to replace them anyways.

That's how I first did it, makes job 5x as hard.

It's easy enough, few circle clips, scattered about, push middles in with thin screwdriver, then they will pop out. Just take a look at it, common sense tbh.

Got one from eBay and fitted today for MOK, good fit and didn't need to trim anything

Just saw its onky the fronts that nedd the liner removed, going to order some more of the rivets from vauxhall as apparently they snap a lot of the time.

Still need to remove the rear bolts lol

I guess vauxhall will also sell the bolts that hold the arches on as well as the ones for the bumper?
