The Ford Transit REAR Wheels Well Liners are out of the mold and ready to start fitting onto the Transit. There will be some hardware requirements and this will be the chance to see what hardware is needed to keep the liner intact. Since the biggest problems for other manufactures and Ford was making the liner work without drilling into the interior of the Transit, we hope to cure that problem when making this installation.

In the past, I had a test set from Penda and later got a set from Lokari and even went as far as ordering a container from Germany but the COVID breakout kept that from happening. I didn't really like the Lokari design and wanted something close to the ones I had from Penda. The ones I have now were made from using a template of the actual Transit wheel well area so the fit should be superior to any of the ones so far.

I will be coming back here with some pictures and will be asking for comments as far as the mounting of the REAR wheel well liners. Once I get the final hardware for these liners, the first group will be available for the Transits delivered to my customers. As we get production up to having quantities available and packaging to ship them, they will be offered for sale. When that time comes. I will come back and give out the complete information for ordering them.

Sir I certainly applaud your efforts for this vehicle!

Here are some of the things I have worked with in the past when starting with the REAR wheel well liners. At this point, I still have the test strips from the Penda prototype liners that were flat and the velcro was holding them to the sidewall. When I got the liners from Lokari, they were flat as well so the attachment would be similar to the Penda ones.

With the NEW wheel well liners having the molded panel to match the factory indentions, being able to use some 2 sided adhesive or even possibly some spray-on adhesive would be possible.

Using a salvaged Transit rear section as a template, this rear wheel well liner was made to fit behind the existing outer wheel well trim panel. The 2 existing plastic fasteners are removed and the panel fits behind this trim and you replace the fasteners to hold it in place. I may need to get some new ones from Ford or another source since a lot of these on the older Transits may break apart when removed.

These fasteners are from my 2017 T-250 MR DSD with close to 51,000 miles so these may need to be replaced especially if you have a older Transit and/or more mileage than this one.

I have the full length custom running boards on my DSD van so I will need to remove the bolt holding the running boards to mount the liner in this position. Here is another place where I will need to have a bolt as part of the hardware kit.

I removed the fasteners on the rear trim panel and placed the liner in place. I will try and get some NEW fasteners so the complete install will look as new.

This is how the REAR wheel well liner looks now before being fully secured in place. I will work on getting some new rear fasteners and remove the bolt holding up the rear of the running boards. I ordered the 2 sided adhesive strips to hold the liner to the inside wheel well as we do not want to drill into the inside of the van.

IF YOU CAN REFRAIN FROM POSTING ANY COMMENTS FROM THIS POINT, I CAN CONTINUE WITH THIS INSTALLATION WITHOUT ANY CONFLICT IN SHOWING THE COMPLETE INSTALLATION. You can place a 'like' on it...just keep the comments to yourself.

I bought the rear wheel well liners from Ed last month and installed them on my 2021 cargo van.
As he did I reused the existing 2 rear push pin retainers.
The forward wheel well liner hole is 1/2" diam and the corresponding body panel hole is 5/8". I couldn't find an appropriate push pin retainer so I enlarged the 1/2" hole to 5/8" and attached using a 5/8" plastic bolt from McMasters.

I attached the ribs of the liner to the ribs of the body panel using strips of Scotch Extremely Strong fastener - velcro- Tire Automotive tire Hood Motor vehicle Wheel Bumper Automotive exterior Material property Bicycle part Tints and shades Font Material property Carton Packaging and labeling Advertising like - after smoothing & cleaning the body panel ribs.
