Front wheel liner change using heat gun

Hi all, my new alloy wheels are slightly rubbing off the front wheel liner on both sides. I need to push back the liner by a small amount to create extra room. Using a heat gun to make the change seems to be a better option that cutting some of the liner off. Has anyone used a heat gun to do this mod and any tips.

Cheers,

M

Sounds like a good idea. Check location of the washer reservior first

Where is it located. I'll try and get a picture up but if you can imagine that your looking at the front wheel on the drivers side i.e you can see the whole wheel and the tyre sidewall, the rubbing is coming from the left hand side I.e the drivers and not on the right where the front of the car is. I hope this makes sense.
