rear wheel arch liner
#1
hi, im getting water in the boot of my berlingo from a gap between the liner and the body panel. i think the body panel has been pushed out when a family member reversed into something :/

photos

does anyone know if it would be ok to just whack some expanding foam in there? ive put my hand in the hole and there arent any clips in there so im not sure if its possible to pull the 2 parts together, the rest of the liner is intact so im assuming the body panel has been pushed out.

Many thanks

Andrew

If there's a gap big enough to get your hand in and the bodywork is pushed out it sounds like you need some attention to the metal under the plastic liner. Can you see any bulge or damage along the side of the car and is the water getting in there or somewhere else ?
So where does this bit go then ?

Thanks for your reply, there doesn't seem to be any noticeable bulge, the reversing incident was only very light so can't have damaged anything structural. 
I'm going to take the wheel off soon and have a proper look inside the arch.

Regarding the water ingress, there are no other holes, just this huge gaping one in the side Wink I took the side panel out in the boot and it's wet inside where the electrics are for the lights and speaker.

There doesn't seem to be anywhere that clips could attach the liner to the body panel that it has come away from, so unless it's slipped down at the back then the body panel must have been pushed out, in that case I'll just bang expanding foam in, im not too bothered about how it looks tbh.

Thanks again for your help, really appreciate it

I do not have a B9, but looking at the photos, these plastic wheel arches just clip on the curved body of the egde of the car. There are no clips inside, just push it upwards so the black plastic goes inside the outer egde of the car. Does not make much sense, but just push it upwards and it should clip.

I would not put expanding foam in there, it will soak water and keep it moist. If I were you I would look if the water is not coming from somewhere else, the wheel arch should be water tight, at least at the back. Even without the plastic wheel arch protector, there should not be water coming inside the vehicle. Maybe I am wrong, but on my M59 the water cannot go inside the boot even without the plastic wheel arch protector.

Thanks saskak. I'll have a look around when I take the cover off. You're right about the foam... Will have to do some thinking

With the liner out you may see the point of water ingress eg on a seam where two panels meet.
Some seam sealer might do the trick if the area is fully dry or maybe even some lead and gutter mastic - very sticky never sets and likes living in the wet
