Updated:

Our Ford Transit came with the optional Front & Rear Vinyl Floor Covering (Option Code 16E), which includes a cargo liner (backed with denim), slider door scuff plate, rear door sill plate, and rear wheelhouse covers. As it turns out we’re glad our van had this option, because it protected our investment until we were finally ready to start our camper conversion. But the time has come to move on and to remove the factory floor covering!

How To Remove The Factory Floor


1. Remove the Rear door sill plate


1.1. Use a small flat screwdriver and gently pry the 5 screw covers off:

1.2. Remove the 5 screws with a M6 HEX socket:

1.3. The rear sill plate can now come off!

The Rear Door Sill Plate OEM part number is CK4Z-6140374-AA (MSRP $151.80). You can get it aftermarket for cheaper:

2. Remove the Slider door scuff plate


2.1. Similarly, pry the 4 screw covers off and remove the 4 screws using a M5.5 HEX socket. Remove the 2 push-pins as well:

2.2. Pull up hard to disengage the push-pins (underneath) and remove the scuff plate:

2.3. Success!

The Slider Door Scuff Plate OEM part number is CK4Z-6113228-AG (MSRP $292.43). You can get it aftermarket for cheaper:

3. Remove the Cargo Liner


3.1. The cargo liner has a few cutouts in the denim, which seem to be designed so that the liner can be folded over itself:

3.2. The cargo liner is surprisingly heavy (50lbs guesstimate) and hard to grasp, it’s a 2 person job (ideally):

The OEM cargo liner isn’t that great with its denim backing… we like the BedRug VanTred much better:

4. Remove the wheelhouse covers (as required)


The wheelhouse covers hold with 2 push-pins, they’re very straightforward to remove! Simply remove the push-pins and the wheelhouse cover is free to go (the cargo liner should be gone at this point, we forgot to take a photo at the right moment):

The Wheelhouse Cover OEM part number is CK4Z-16A550-GC (MSRP $65 each side):
