I have not done this yet myself but I was getting ready to do it.Where did my fender liners go? I know stealing cat converters is a thing. I wonder if there’s a tech procedure that requires removing them and someone was too lazy to put them back.
Removing the fender liners supposedly makes it much easier to replace the exhaust manifold bolts. It's pretty common that they break. Cheap crappy steel.
I have 3 broken currently on my '10 Esky Premium ESV w/130k
Truth is that there are probably a number of reasons why they could be missing. Auto repairs would be at the top of my list. It's easier to get at some items this way.
