floor mat anchor plate loose

Recommended Posts

I know this sounds minor, but here goes. The left rear velcro anchor plate for my driver's floor mat is loose. The anchor plate appears to be intact, so I can only guess the hole where the anchor screws in is damaged. Any ideas how I might secure the anchor when the hole is too large due to possible damage? This sliding floor mat is driving me nuts. Thank you any and all responders.

I had the same problem. I just scootched the mat over about an inch or so, left or right, doesn't matter, and started a new hole in the carpet to thread in. I used a small bladelike punch awl to start the hole. Hope this helps. It's worked great for me, and then when I need to do it again, I'll move it back to the original place, because by then, that will have filled in through use.

Mike's solution is certainly the least expensive. I do not like those anchors or drilling more holes in the carpet. You can get a set of Lloyd's mats from Suncoast Parts. They have great anchors which hook on to the seat rail bolts and the mats clip to them. No Velcro.

So the anchor plate only penetrates the carpet? For some reason I assumed it anchored into something more substantial. Also, are the anchors from Suncoast available without the Lloyd's mats? Thank you both for your responses.

Correct, it only penetrates the carpet and if you take your mats out frequently eventually the anchors will come out with the mats. Porsche finally now uses the Audi method with solid posts. Unfortunately, with Lloyd mats only the male side of the buckle is attached to the seat rail. The female side is sewn to a tab on the bottom of the mats. Depending on which mats you get and the options you load on they can be relatively inexpensive. Mine were $175 for all four with script and piping. Plain fronts are $124
