    My 2010 is currently in the shop, but I ordered these beforehand and they just came in. They look way too large, but I can't compare them to the car so I don't know if they actually are?

    Here's the auction screenshot and the auction.
    Here's the photo of mine (please excuse the clutter, ps3 controller for scale).
    These are the part numbers that were listed

    Partslink Number:

    TO1248158
    TO1249158

    Is it just me?

    I don't know where the Xbox controller is going to go, but the fender liner looks good.

    I recently installed a new front fender liner on my 2016 Toyota Corolla S plus, and it pretty much looks the same.

    Make sure that you get all of the assorted fasteners that are needed.

    @Purrius you should be able to post pics directly in the thread, with the “Upload a File” button.

    The wheel well liner is a long, convoluted piece, with an odd, shop-bolted bar splice near the front. Requires maybe 15 fasteners, and there’s one near the back that’s pretty much impossible to remove without destroying it.

    I wouldn’t buy anything for until your head gasket gets replaced.

    Do you ever re-read what you wrote to make sure it actually makes sense? Of do you not care about making sense?

    I mentioned in the post, I'd already ordered these before the issues came up.

    Just in case you didn't know... What you wrote makes no sense at all. You are NOT being helpful at all.

    I understood what you meant, which I feel like is all that really matters, as it was in response to my post. So no worries, mate.

    Always use all new fasteners all the way around without exception. I generally expect the holes to be damaged and I use oversized lock pen designed body fastener kits. I buy a big box of them and I drill all holes oversized to accommodate the new fasteners. Be absolutely certain that you have fixed the front portion incredibly well because it is notorious for catching air getting pulled down and trapped under the front tire which guarantees the entire wheel liner rips out again

    You were all correct, the parts fit if even with a bit of tight fitting and a tiny bit of after market drilling. Thank you kindly, and I mean it. <3

    "after market drilling" for underbody panels is always way easier than all the fools who spend a fortune on OEM fastners that are more of a hassle than a convenience.
