Impossible to repair, only replace, the part costs 50-60 Euros normally, from a dealer. Changed mine last year.

Just remember though they are GTA specific to fit the wider arch, I had to get one from the dealer after the exact same thing happened. They aren't all that difficult to replace, about 4 or 5 Philips screws if I recall. It's a good opportunity to clean corrosion off the inside of the lip of the arch and seal with waxoyl or similar (I used Bilt Hamber Dynax S50) before fitting the new plastic liner.

Thank you all for the replies :thumbs:.

Yes that's what I thought (GTA specific) and that's why I asked if it was expensive and difficult to replace. So far my experience with the GTA is that most parts are more expensive than other 156 models (the MAF being a very good expample) and replacing something requires you to disassemble the whole car.

I need a pair, but don't see the price coming down if anything up, so I ordered yesterday when driving past the dealer, they said they just sold a pair to a local Gta owner.

Almosst right. I orderd one at Tuynder (in Holland) and including delivery by UPS it was EUR 70,69.
Thank you all for the replies. I will try to change it myself tomorrow when I am changing to winter tyres.

I replaced the arch. It was pretty easy. Not all screws were there and I found a tie rib instead. I did not have the right size screws so used a tie rib as well. Not very neat but effective.

Is there nowhere else to get these from?
Don´t know, I suppose many of the GTA specialists on this forum can help you to get these from an UK supplier.

im in need of a pair & wings och:(
Inner wheel arch not so much ouch, wings are a bit more I think :cry:
What happened? Wear and tear?

Hi,

I see you are Somerset, would be happy to contribute a few beer tokens for your cast offs. I have a few that need repairs and I see that we do not live too far apart.

Cheers,

Edward.
