Hi,

I think I have lost some of the plastic rivets that hold the wheel arch cover in place and as a result the passenger side frontwheel is rubbing on the plastic.

On inspecting the wheel arch it appears that this must have happened some time ago as well as there is a lot of scarring and some holes in the plastic.

Presumably this is a pretty inexpensive and easy part to replace.

Does anyone know if there is a specific order to take the wheel arch cover off?

I can give you the info on this, there is no order to it, but from the paper you will see where they all should be.

Ask me in the morning as I have turned off tonight

You could pop rivet a patch onto the hole
