#3758 of 4457 TSB for fenderwall gap issue
Apr 28, 2004 (5:41 am)
I noticed that my engine bay was quite dirty after only 1500 miles. did some research and found a TSB posted at Clubgp.com forums. Seems that the fenderwall cover (in the wheel well-Front) was trimed short. There is a gap you can put your hand through! Look at the engine bay, you can see your tire tread. well there is a TSB out. her is the info from ClupGP.com

Some customers may comment that the engine compartment is dirtier than normal right in front of the shock tower.
The wheel house may have been trimmed short. Refer to the arrow in the illustration above. There shouldn't be a gap between the liner and the frame of the shock tower.
Replace the wheelhouse liner. Refer to SI Document ID #1242911.
Looks like a few have had this fixed. So will I

The race to quality has really tightened!

I saw those new reports and as good as Hyundai may seem to be now, long term I don't have any faith in those cars. I have seen friends and co-workers curse them too often.
Nice that GM continues to improve. Cadillac's new plant seems to be giving Lexus a run for the money.

Only the forward part of the trunk has been lined in all the cars I have seen. Surprised you have seen some without. The portion behind the number plate isn't linded.

Why do you need it lined?
