Inner fender liner - needed?

What is the purpose of the plastic inner fender liners. Assuming to keep salt and other debre off the paint?

I am playing around with different camber and height settings and hitting the liner. Can you remove it and just spray some of the rubber under spray in the fender instead?

I can't say what the exact purpose of it is, but I'd imagine it has some functional purpose other than protection from the elements. If that was its primary purpose, there'd probably be liners in the rear fender wells too.

There's alot more stuff to protect in the engine bay. Ever see a ten year old car that had the fender well liners removed? Not pretty.

I don't think so, but maybe I'm thinking of my Dad's 2009 Accord that I was detailing last weekend...

I've removed the liners on my last car because of rubbing issues and let me tell you, it wasn't pretty. Needless to say, they are staying on with my accord

The liners keep debris out of the engine compartment, and I'm sure they also help a little with aerodynamics.

Can you elaborate?

What about not taking the whole thing out just cutting the section where rubbing?

Hey Platinum, could you possibly use a heat gun and "mold" the liner out of the way to give you more clearance?
It would be best imho to keep the liner in place.....

If you live in the snow belt you want them in. I have seen cars without them pack the snow in there so tight that it can bow the fender out. Also, on a lot of cars it all ties in together. The fender liner keeps the fender secured and not flap or catch wind while driving.

Good idea... I was thinking of that as well. I need to get the heat gun off my buddy and try it. Seems like the safest idea.

I will try that when I get a chance and post the results

With the amount of road noise evident in a stock Accord, I would not want to be removing inner fender liners. It's bad enough as it is.

I had tons of road grime in my engine bay, it was horrible. Not to mention, my oil filter and oil pan were caked in grime...making it more difficult to change the oil myself on top of having to jack the car to even reach the oil bolt.


I did that at first, then a new spot started making noise, cut that portion. Finally, another spot started to rub and that's when I said I'm taking it out. the joys of driving a slammed car
