Arch liner

I noticed at the weekend that the driver's side front arch liner had ripped from its mounting point. Looks to have been caused by stones because the pain has been chipped off the mount as well. I've seen this is a known issue but my cars out of warranty.

The replacement part is £205. Before I buy the most expensive piece of felt in existence does anyone know if these have been upgraded at all so they won't rip?

Is there an alternative option for replacing or covering it to protect it?

I went through a large puddle recently and I've also had both my felt front wheel arch liners pushed in. I am not prepared to pay £400+ for new ones so I'm going to try and repair with some plastic sheeting.

Is the felt there for sound damping?
Well I've investigated and done a partial repair. Not perfect by a long way but I'll keep an eye on it.

Drivers side wasn't too bad. I've put some plastic grille I had behind it for support and used a larger washer in front to hold it.

Passenger side was much worse. Totally pushed in. Same repair done though, support behind and large washer on the front.
