I'll definitely be interested in getting a full set once they are available aftermarket from multiple sources. It's hard to imagine that Ford did not spec liners in the first place, since there are so many crevasses for gunk to settle in the wheel wells, causing premature rusting. Maybe with enough claims of that, Ford will have a recall or TSB and install them for free for those that complain.

The front ones are now available from Ford when you order a 2017 model (order code 15C) or at the Ford dealer from their parts department. Not sure if the Ford Parts Distribution Centers are stocking them yet as when I was at the SEMA Show, mine ordered via my local parts guy came direct from Penda to the dealership. Matt Ford has a set of these front liners in stock now and if you missed out with getting them ordered on your 2017 model, then make use of the installation instructions listed above.

Ford is not looking at supplying the rear wheel liners at this time except for the Dual Rear Wheel models (order code 87B). Those are coming from a different vendor and I hope to have more details on those liners in the future. Penda is looking to make the rear liners for the Single Rear Wheel models as a aftermarket accessory and will use my Transit as the prototype for that part. They are projecting late summer for those to be available through their Penda distributors. The front ones will only be available via Ford and not through the Penda network dealers.

I installed my liners today. Ford tells you to turn the wheels to the left when working on the right side and right when working on the left. It's easier to simply remove the wheel on the side you're working on.

I started on the right side.

The first thing they tell you to do is insert a square plastic "nut" in a hole in the back of the wheel well. Mine had some undercoating that needed to be cleaned out. Here's the nut.




Next, attach a spring nut to a hole at the lower rear of the liner. It will eventually be attached here.




Remove the 2 T25 screws at the bottom front of the wheel well trim, here.



Stuff the liner into the wheel well and tuck the tabs behind the trim edge. Then screw the T27 torx screw & washer into the square "nut" at the back of the wheel well. Next screw the 7mm screw & washer into the spring nut through the hole in the trim at the bottom rear, capturing the liner behind the trim. Replace the two T25 screws that you removed, capturing the liner behind the trim. Now find the hole in the top of the liner and drill a 0.25" hole in the wheel well there. I found it easier to mark the body through the hole in the liner, then remove the liner and drill the hole. There isn't enough room to get a drill in there with the wheel on the van and the liner needs to be screwed in to accurately mark the hole. Paint the hole to seal against rust. If you removed the liner, put it all back in and insert a push pin in the drilled hole. Finally, insert another push pin in the hole found in the inner wheel well here.




It will look like this.



I have mud flaps, so I trimmed the liner to fit and attached it behind the mud flaps using the 7mm screw & washer.



The left side is mostly the same except that there are 2 threaded studs onto which you install push-on nuts, one at the upper rear and one at the inner front which replaces the push pin used on the right side.





Mine is a 2016. Dunno why Ford waited til 2017 to do the job and only did it half way. They still need to do the rear wheel wells.

Covering some of the sheetmetal covered by the wheel liner (with one of the stick on sound deadeners) would help reduce road noise.

HK3Z 16F099-A, List price is $215, but you can save a chunk from one of the parts discounters. Edit: Missed the part about him putting them in. And let him pay for them.

The first 2017 Ford Transit Order Guide dated 5/11/2016 did not have the order code for the Wheel Well Liners. The order code 15C Wheel Well Liners (front only) came available when the Order Guide was updated on 8/1/2016. When did you place your Transit order?

Thanks for the pictures and the ordering info in the other post.

Hopefully I'll get to installing mine this week.

Maybe you can update your first post in this thread to include the part number, HK3Z 16F099-A for easy reference.

Cheers

So far haven't found any place where the 'chunk' saved isn't offset by the cost of shipping. Do you know of any that in the end is any cheaper than paying the $215 it costs via dealer?

I think that shipping cost depends on where you live in relation to the dealer you're buying from. I googled something like "discount ford parts" and then tried a few of the results. I'm on the east coast and have dealt with http://levittownfordparts.com/ and been satisfied. The liners were ~$173 and shipping was ~$15. Some outfit on the west coast had a similar price but wanted something like $38 for shipping.
