Does 2005 Have a Liner in Rear Wheel Wells?

Postby kc27 » Thu Sep 13, 2018 4:38 pm

I purchased a 2005 Vibe recently, and am wondering if the rear wheel wells have liners. I you have a Vibe from this year or generation, let me know if your rear wheel wells have liners - thanks.

I checked the body manual that is online at https://www.genuinegmparts.com/for-professionals/collision-repair-manuals?make=Ponitac&model=Vibe, but the remove and replace instructions for the quarter panel read "Remove all related panels and components..." which really is not specific enough to answer the question of whether a liner or shield is supposed to be there.

My 2003 does not have plastic wheel well liners in the rear. The rear wheel wells are just undercoated body metal. The fronts have plastic liners, but my rear wheel wells do not. I'd bet your 2005 is the same

My '05 is exactly how joatmon described his '03.

joatmon is correct - I checked some vibes while pulling parts at a recycling yard. The drivers side rear has a plastic cover protecting some lines that are routed through the wheel well. It is not a wheel well liner. It looks like there is no splash shield or liner for the rear wheel wells.

All the above are correct. There is some plastic covering the fuel filler neck and lines in the driver wheel well, but nothing else.
