Wheel Arch Trim? / skirt ? / Flare???
« on: July 10, 2018, 08:56:18 PM »
X5 E53 3.0D Sport facelift model 2006. Titanium silver Metallic.

I have the above car and have lost a clip on Wheel Arch Trim? / skirt ? / Flare??? from over the front nearside wheelarch.

I'm trying to find one ie on Fleabay but having no luck as I don't know what it's called.

What comes up on Fleabay looks nothing like mine????

Does anyone know it's correct name for searching for a replacement please

These are the bits I had to get for mine when I stripped the wheel arch out:

Inner Wheel Arch
Hex head screw & washer x 7 07119902267
Expanding nut x 7 63121374075
Expanding rivet x 4 51481915964

Wheel arch trim
Expanding rivet x 10 51717002953

If they look like this they’re the ones ending 694

Sleepyfolk, it's the actual silver cosmetic wheel arch flare or whatever that clips in place over the wheelarch I need to replace, not the black plastic clips LoL.

Perhaps I have not worded my post correctly.

I just don't know what to google to find one.

Take a look at www.realoem.com put the last 7 digits of your vin in the search box then check for the part you need it will give a small drawing and part numbers that will help with your search.

You could also try some of the specialist BMW breakers

A picture is worth a thousand words...since you can't find it in the parts database...and none of the suggestions offered up to this point is correct...a picture of what you're asking about would help us help you better.  :)

In fact, your build sheet (VIN decode) may be required to get to the bottom of your request.  If you have options that we are not aware of (especially since we are working in the dark in not even being able to see what you have)...be prepared to offer up that info or look it up and supply it so that we can be more helpful.  :)

There are multiple wheel arch trims depending on how the vehicle is optioned...for example, even the regular wheel arch trim has TWO different part nbrs to accommodate different wheel option...take note of #1 & #4 in the first diagram below.  If you have option code S2KDA, then the arch trim has a different part number.   If you have the aluminum footplate...the trim has a different parts diagram...thus, slightly different parts/part nbrs to accommodate fitment differences:

This is the piece I need
Just to add to this. These bits, about 6 to each wheel arch are what hold the extra bit of arch on on the 4.6
