Husky WeatherBeater Front and Rear Floor Liners Review - 2014 Toyota Prius

Today on our 2014 Toyota Prius we're going to review and install the Husky WeatherBeater custom auto floor liners for front and rear, part number HL98923, tan in color. This application is also available in gray, part number HL98922; or black, part number HL98921. Now to begin our install we need to remove the old or manufacturer's floor mats. As we do that, we'll go ahead and take note of the dirt and debris that's come off of the floor mat and is getting onto the vehicle's carpeting. Now with the mat out of the way, we can really see the excessive dirt and even a dirt line that's formed around and underneath the manufacturer's floor mat. Now let's install the new Husky WeatherBeater custom floor liner. As we slide the liner in place, we'll line up the special modlings that will go over the manufacturer's attachment points. That, along with the special nibs on the bottom of the liner, and the custom contouring, will hold the liner in place so it doesn't shift and move around.
