    How should the front arch liners sit?

    Mine weren't properly attached. Should they sit with the lip from the bumper over the top of them, and the liner tucked in behind it, or vice versa?

    Cheers, I thought so. Unfortunately the holes on mine don't seem to line up very well with the holes on the bumper.

    they never do, they arch liner sort of needs to be pushed up and into the bumper corner to line up. Also make sure the speed clips are in place otherwise it will never do up

    I thought you probably meant those

    I need some more of those. Do you know if I can get them anywhere on the high street?

    First all I'd call up TPS and see if they have any they could sell you?

    But your best bet would be to take one off, pop down to your local B&Q, screw fix etc and get them to match it for you.

    Managed to find a pack of mixed sized ones at Halfords but they are a rip at £7.99. I'm going to see if I can find any A3/S3's at the scrappers after the New Year first as I need a couple of little bits.
