Weathertech floor liners won't fit Manual ??

New member here.

I just brought home a 2006 LX Sedan with 5 speed manual. I was looking at the weathertech site for mats. I really like the new digital fit floor liners. I will certainly get one for the back seat. But, the site has a note that says the fronts won't fit a Manual transmission? Does anyone know why? Has anyone tried? I guess I can go with the old style if have to, but it's a bummer to not be able to get the new ones to fit.

Also, do the grey weathertechs match the Honda grey pretty well?

Thanks !!

Richard

Thats interesting, I have them on my 07 6 speed manual. Don't see where there would be a differece, as both are 7th Generation.

Do you have the new style digital fit liners?

If so, no fit problems around the clutch area and left side foot rest? That would be great news.

Thanks,
Richard

Had mine for about a year now. No problems around the pedals.

I would call them and ask why they are not supposed to fit? Might be a misprint. If the call center person does not know have them find out why. I got the Honda all weather mats because they have the eyelet hole so there was no chance of sliding the mat when shifting. They have worked well so far.

seems weird that they wont fit manual trans cars because i have an 03 accord sedan 5 speed and they fit. the funny part of it all was that teir catalog doesnt have anything for the 2003 accord but for 2005 and up but the cars are exact same gen with only cosmetics diff. the only thing is u must remove ur carpet floor mats in order for ur liner to fit under the clutch without obstructing the clutch movement

So after some thought, I decided to just order the liner for the rear, and the mats for the front. The next day, after yet another post from someone saying they have the front liners in their manual, I called Weathertech, and the customer service rep said there is no fit issue at all. A few customers have called to complain that the liner interferes with their clutch, for whatever reason (probably installing them over the original mats), and so Weathertech made the decision to put a notice saying "doesn't fit manual cars". But that it really should fit fine.

I told him I really would rather have the liners. He was able to have the warehouse stop my order, switch out the front mats, and replace with the front liners.

Everything arrived today. Liners fit perfect, front and rear, and no interference whatsoever with the clutch. And they are SWEET !!

Thanks everyone for your inputs.

Talking

Seems like people always want to see pics, so here you go. This is the driver side liner in my 2006 Accord, 4cyl 5MT. Weathertech says on their website that the liner doesn't fit manual transmission models. Well, what do you think?

Here's the liner in the car:

Here's how it fits under and around the pedals:

Here's the clutch pushed in. The pedals hits the floor WAY above the liner. Anyone see any interference issues?!?

Looks good, they probably could have extended the front edge even further up without any problem, as the clutch (at least on the V-6) doesn't engage until near the top of the travel!

I wonder if this will fit the Coupe?

And how much did that cost you?

Front pair is $100, and will fit the coupe. One piece rear is $70, but according to the Weathertech website does not fit coupe. And for that I believe them, since the size and shape and hump is probably much different in the coupe.

Just FYI. According to Weathertech the digital mats are not available on the 04 and 03 models. This is not true as the 03 and 04 have the same floor as the 05.

Have you actually tried these on an 03 or 04?

Subscribing.. Would love to know if I can order 05 Floor Liners for my 04 Sedan.

-Jason


Update: Called WeatherTech... They said that Honda changed the location of the mounting posts for the floor mats in the 05+ models. He also mentioned that there were a few small dimensional changes. I spoke to Derek in Orders/Product Information.

Hope this helps!
