I'd be interested to know how many folk have got front (or rear for that matter) wheelarch-liner sealing rubbers...

you know? the kind of things that go round the door openings..?

I'm wondering if all cars are meant to have them, but they got lost over the years

The rubber with flexible metal inside ? I was considering dumping them from my 145 but they help the arch liner in terms of sealing (I think) so they're staying. I have none on my x plate 146, dunno what year they stopped em?

They seem to have removed them on the ph2's. Maybe they were a trap for grit and moisture or maybe just a cost saving.
