I'm talking about wheel arch liners of course,
Had a clattering noise on my V6 on start-up and everytime the engine was under strain, over time it drove me mad!
Traced the noise to the right hand wheel arch flap that covers the cam belt pulleys, there was a big chunk of it missing so was flapping loose. I put a new one on, so noise has gone
Unfortunately on the Lh side i have the same issue, but to my horror this flap is wearing away a patch of the gearbox casing
I have heard that this happens a lot on early v6 156's , so was wandering if there was a mod involved to stop the erosion of my gearbox, not keen on just leaving it off, would buying a new one stop the rot??
