Weathertech floor liners

Has anyone purchase the weathertech floor liners for the 13 Bu? I just received the set that i order, the back liners fit perfect however the front ones i'm puzzle, i try to install them but you have to put so much pressure on the liner to snap into the post i manage to get one post on but with all the force i can muster i can't get the second post to snap into place. Now i'm afraid to try to removed the liner from the post i got the feeling i may end it up ripping the post and the carpet. I'm going to call weathertech and see what they have to say. Any comments from anyone that has purchase this liners...

Re: Weathertech floor liners

Just installed mine the other day in the cold. Yes they are tough to get on, but once on they will snap back off ok. I used a heat gun, hair dryer will do, to warm the cup on the mat and they went on pretty easy then. Hope this helps

Re: Weathertech floor liners

I'll give a try with your idea. I call weathertech and i was told to basically put my back to it. I also try to remove the one side that snap into place i end it up ripping the top plastic cover in the liner so now the clear plastic piece still attached to the post . Great design in this floor liners...

A little heat will work...guaranteed. I know cause I tried force, foot stompin and even a 2 pound sledge hammer and none worked.

If you can get a hold of her, see if Oprah can sit on it. Of course you may then have a dented floor pan but I can guarantee she will get the floormat snapped on.

That will be an interesting phone call to weathertech for warranty repairs ,

I think they look great and they fit all the contours very well. Black, gray or tan.

Re: Weathertech floor liners

Do you think they are better than the all-weather ones from Chevy?
