Do Weathertech Mats Slide

In addition to removing all the other floor mats from your vehicle, make sure to remove the yellow safety label from your new Floor Liners before beginning the installation process. This label should not be thrown away and should be retained with your vehicle owner's manual.

Using a vacuum cleaner, sweep the carpet to help reduce build up of dirt and debris in the future and reduce any potential damage or stains that may occur. If a vacuum cleaner is unavailable, you can use a dry rag to brush the debris out.

LHS (Left-hand Side) or RHS (Right-hand Side) are often molded into the underside of the respective Floor Liner adjacent to the part number (W102-LHS, for example). Take a quick moment to double-check that your vehicle has factory supplied retention hooks installed in the floor.

If there are not any, make sure to install the specifically supplied hooks that came with your Weathered Floor Mats or Floor Liners, or if applicable utilize the supplied retention grommets or anchors. Place the Floor Mat or Floor Liner marked with LHS into the driver’s side foot well, making sure to line up the retention hooks or grommets (if applicable).

You can quickly test if the retention systems have been engaged correctly by pulling the mat forward. After double-checking that the floor mats are secured, and before moving on to install the passenger side mats, take a moment to test the range of motion on your vehicle’s accelerator, brake and clutch (if applicable) pedals.

In order to get them back into their best shape, we recommend that you lay them out on a flat surface in a room temperature location. The Protector solution adds a strong, durable anti-slip finish that will help your Floor Liners resist staining and makes cleaning and maintaining them much easier.

The driver side stays put fine thanks to the anchors. BUT the passenger side and the rear slide around too much for my liking.

I tried putting some non-slip drawer liner underneath which helped some, but still moves too much for me. If I can't fix this, I'm considering the Honda all weather mats. I also have husky floor liners in my Venza, and they are tight fit.

I just bought an 09' a few weeks ago and if been w sting to order the same mats ! Glad you shared your experience because that would be a deal breaker for me also.

I had Weather tech floor mats in my BMW coupe and didn't have an issue with them sliding around but mainly due to the floor surface area not being so large. I had an 07 CTV that I installed the Honda floor mats, they skated around also.

I think the husky mats have small drippy things on the bottom, so they stay in place better.....MAx liner makes a similar product, and they stayed in place very well on our Tucson.....heard a lot of good reviews on the Husky product though.... Husky liners have a lot of spikes on the bottom.

Maybe my factory carpet is too smooth Anyway, I stopped by the dealership this morning, and they had the OEM all weather mats in stock, so I got those instead. The weather tech are definitely deeper though, so the OEM ones won't hold as much dirt or liquid.

Some discounted ones listed on eBay are factory rejects. Whenever the passenger tried to get out, the mat would slide forward up into the foot well, so maybe like 4-5 inches of movement.

Similar problem with the rear passenger mat. Did you report your problem to Weather tech ? Your rear mat moving is even stranger.

I have the same issue on my 2014 Ellen, passenger side slides forward at least three inches. I was a bit anxious during ordering because Weather tech and Husky are the bigger names, but the rubber cargo mat we had kept sliding around and getting in the way of the rear hatch latch, and I was sick of moving it forward every time we used the vehicle.

The Rapider is more of a rubbery foam type material than the 'hard plastic vinyl' Weather tech material (and doesn't have that sharp tap-tap-tap sound harder plastic tends to make when you move your feet around), again personal preference and both will protect and clean up well. The Weather tech may have an edge if you are in an abusive environment with sharp objects of some nature, but the Rapider handles snow, slush, salt and sand just fine.

They weigh less than I anticipated (and much less than the rubber mat I had been using) but seem to be very durable and well-made so the light weight is actually a benefit for ease of removal/installation when cleaning. You probably won't go wrong with any of these products, but I'm really happy with the Rapider line and it looks really nice.

Based on my experience with the Pilot mats I'm ordering a set for my '09 CTV... let you know how they go when they arrive next week. I just got a set of Weathered Digitalis floor mats for my 2009.

Now that I am using the Husky Weather Beater Liners, no movement and fits like a glove! Here are some pictures of driver side, passenger side and back seat.

Have been in numerous vehicles with Weather Tech, and they do tend to move. I got the gray Husky liners, and they are a good color match to the interior.

If you buy them get them from Amazon, they have a great 30-day return policy. I wish I saw these pictures before I bought, support took over a month of emails backs and forth to tell me that I had the right liners only to tell me that I can’t return them because they are not new and can not be resold.

Steer clear of Weather tech, customer service told me that if I wanted full coverage of the cargo area I need to buy the 3rd row mats and butt them together. John one of the higher ups for customer service told me that they keep a list of products that customers are not happy with the fitment, he told me that he can’t speak internationally but this is a product that is not the list.

Weather tech, or virtually any floor mat will fit well on a vehicle that has a fixed seat position. I have a set of their floor liners on my Subaru Forester, and the fit is pretty impressive.

If the mat was full sized to fit that space, what would you do with it when you had to move the middle seat to a “normal” position to accommodate 3rd row passengers? With the tremendous flexibility of our adjustable seats comes a little of discomfort on floor coverage.

Fibber2, I agree that in fixed seat positions they fit great. I had the cargo mat for a pilot and loved it, fit perfectly.

The driver and passenger mats in the van fit nice too. I told John the customer service guy that I bought these on the reputation of their name, fit quality and my previous experiences.

With the tremendous flexibility of our adjustable seats comes a little of discomfort on floor coverage. With there return policy there is no cost to them if you don’t like them, you pay the return shipping, and they send the mats to someone else. The Fix: If the 2nd row mats went all the way to the front of the 2nd row seats in the fullback position.

They could use the raised rails on either side of the seat tracks allowing the customer to cut inside the rails all the way or part way if the customers wanted the 2nd row positioned differently. I think the cargo liner should have go up to the second row seats fully back minimum.

The mat comes rolled up in a box shipped, so they are easy enough to roll/fold if you needed the 3rd row seat unexpectedly. If you know you are going to be using the 3rd row I would just leave the cargo mat at home.

The picture of the cargo mat on their website is below, again using angles to make it appear going further than it actually does: It would just lay in the back and is not a custom fit but it will protect the carpet.

I am sorry you have issues with them, I had the opposite experience but then again I contacted customer support for a return the day after I got them and I did not use them since I did not like the fitting. They sent me a free prepaid shipping form via email that I had to print at home.

If you use it and it's no longer sellable, it's hard to expect the vendor to take it back. Because of this it shows wear more than some of their older heavier products, and doesn't lay quite as flat in places as I would like.

The front ones were too long and didn’t allow my seats to come forward.

The rear ones were so off, they didn’t line up with the pegs that hold them in place and the front of them was so long, they covered the floor/foot heater openings. They wouldn't accept a return either, so I started such a stink with the management, they gave me 75% off what I paid to keep them.

If you use it and it's no longer sellable, it's hard to expect the vendor to take it back. I don't particularly love Weathered, and replaced my Weathered floor mats in my Sienna and another car eventually with Husky Liners (not as good quality but better fitment IMO), but the company was good about replacing wind/rain deflectors for my Sienna for the middle row that kept falling out (and which I eventually replaced with Van Culture ones) and my Civic (one side was too tight of a fit in the window channel) without making it a hassle.

But yeah, you can't complain about the fitment, then use it, and then expect them to take it back for a refund. And coming on here trying to harm their business because you're mad about it is not cool, especially since that company manufactures its products in the U.S. instead of in China or elsewhere.
