Wheel arch lining ...how to fix ?

Hello all , I recently wedged some plastic bits to fix the front wheel arch liner ( passenger side ) to "fix" some rattle ..anyway it worked for a while. Anyone got advice on how to secure the wheel arch liner for good ? Thanks in advanced

I found that the main rattle on my car was to the rear of the wheel where the liner meets the end of the sill member. There is a little flap on the end of the liner and errrmmm...... flaps!
I bought some felt pads from a DIY store and stuck them to the liner along that bit - and all the noises disappeared like magic. I didn't have to go round the other edges of the liner to cure the noise.
If you want something more - I have had great success in the past with clear silicone sealant, which will bond cleaned surfaces together - luckily that wasn't necessary on my Alfa, but you might find it useful.
