Wheel arch lining?
« on: September 19, 2018, 09:54:45 AM »
When we went to inspect our repaired car yesterday (which I rejected) I spotted something I've never seen before.

The rear wheel arch seems to not have a plastic trim / cover aside from a bit at the back of the arch. Is this normal?

It is a one piece moulding held in by eight capnuts.

And yes it should be there.   Something else they've forgotten

Thanks guys. Really sick of this garage at the moment.

I've contacted the insurance company and they are dealing with it as a complaint. A Vizion Network investigator will be making a visit to them.

Can't believe we are having so much hassle from a Mazda dealership!
