I'm baffled at how bad Honda botched this.
Apparently, to keep the drivers side floor mat from slipping you can
use clips/anchors supplied by Honda. They are little plastic things
with a stub that fits through the holes on the mat, and the bottom has
Get this, they expect us to cut slits in the carpet so that the
anchors stay on the floor!
I found that there are two indentations on the carpet where you need
to cut slits. Also found two slits in the plastic square (non carpeted
part of the floor) but they don't seem to be in the right place.
Almost as if it was a design mistake.
So I THINK I am supposed to cut slit in the indentations, then another
slit right near the plastic part of floor, then slide the thing
through both slits and clamp it. With only one slit you cannot clamp
the darned things.
End result is crappy, half assed looking floor mat attachment. Many
years of use are SURE to tear the carpet.
Anyone have better luck with this? Also wondered if maybe I should
slide the entire anchor under the carpet, and instead use the clamp
part to clamp insulation????
