Some jobs on the Porsche Cayenne require removal of the inner wheel well liners such as changing the fog lights or the turn signal bulbs. Removal of the liners is basically simple, however it can be a bit frustrating due to the number of fasteners used to secure them in place.

Begin by jacking the car up and securing it on jack stands. See out article on jacking up your Cayenne for more information. It is also a good idea to clean out the inside of the liners prior to removal. This makes things a bit easier when re-installing. Also, be ready for dirt, sand and all kind of grime to fall out from behind the liners.

Begin by removing the T25 Torx screws (green arrows) around the outside edge of the wheel liner.

Next, remove the two plastic 10mm body nuts on either side of the strut (green arrows).

Now remove the T25 Torx screws along the front lower edge of the wheel liner (green arrows).

Remove the T25 Torx screws along the back lower edge of the wheel liner (green arrows).

Don't forget to also remove the T25 Torx screw underneath the car on the rear edge of the liner (green arrow).

Note the orientation of the flaps along the outer edge of the liner.

Note the orientation of the flaps along the outer edge of the liner. You'll need to locate these correctly when re-installing the liner.

Now carefully pry the wheel liner out of the wheel well.

Now carefully pry the wheel liner out of the wheel well. You will have to work with the liner a bit to remove it. It helps to first remove the front edge off the turn signal assembly and slowly work it out heading towards the rear edge.

And here's the finished result with the liner removed from the car.

gene Comments: The problem is when you reinstall the liner . There must be a trick to doing it because it took six hours for me to reinstall the liner.

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: When installing the liner, you want to feed the fender side up and in while aligning fastening holes. The inner fender (inside) of liner is then fed into place, pushing it up and in. - Nick at Pelican Parts
