I'm looking for information on how to attach the plastic rear wheel protectors for the rear inner fender lips on the OG 9-5 wagon. My car came with the lips in the trunk after the rust was repaired at the rear of the wheel arches.
You are correct - some sort of gooey epoxy was used. It is somewhat tar-like! Mine were in rough shape so I ripped them off and finished the edge with some rubber garage door seal and applied with 3M double-side outdoor tape, and they've been there for years now.
The arch trim just pushes on (watch your alignment fore-aft before you start pushing on). The "C" shape of the trim has metal inside the black plastic that actually holds it in place. Just did this after fixing the dog leg rust on my son's car. Don't overthink it! ;ol;
