Inner Wheel Wells

Recommended Posts

Loren, or anyone. I have a 2000 C4. I noticed there is a dark, maybe plastic, wheel liner under the rear wheel wells. Can I remove this? I have a ding in the top fender from a fallen branch and I am going to get paintless dent removal guys to fix it, but I'm unsure how to access the body under there.

Sure, it will likely be easier to get at with the wheel off. Then just remove the plastic rivets and any screws. I would keep some extra rivets onhand as sometimes they break from age/weather, etc.

Haven't done this yet, but in looking at it I'm wondering. Do you think I'll be able to access the sheet metal over the wheel well from underneath? Hmmm looks like it might not be accessable. I'm wondering if that is a plastic piece that goes right around the wheel well or not. There is some plastic there for sure. Do you know if you can access the wheel well from the inside of the car if I take the inside panel off?

I was fortunate as the guy I use to remove dents did an excellent job on my rear quater panel. What looked like a branch ding, ended up bing a palm imprint. For those that need to know, you can access the inner wheel wells by simply removing a 1 1/2" plug in the wheel well and presto you can get to the body.
