Boot Piece Help?

Postby SidwickTheSloth » Tue Oct 17, 2017 12:57 pm

Hey guys, I need help with the 3 pieces in the boot of my Sportback. I've just recently purchased this car and the 3 pieces have warped for some reason and now do not sit flat and flush.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to how to fix/flatten these pieces back to normal?
Current: 2010 Lancer CJ SX Sportback

P1 driver so I do have restrictions :cry:

Because they are plastic I don't think you can really flatten it back out (heat and weight might work), surprised it would warp without breaking. The Sportback floor can be used in an upper and lower position, mostly if you have a full size spare.

If it was used in the upper position with the space saver spare I could see how it might warp with excessive weight as there is no support in the middle. If you don't have a full size spare try putting the floor in the lower position, just lift from the hand hold and angle it back down the runners.

The side floor panels can pop out as there are storage bins underneath. If the bins have moved they can easily be taken out via the 1 screw in the middle and re-seated.
