Floor mats moving around

Don't know if anyone else has this problem, but my floor mat likes to move around. It moves forward until the edge is starting to go up the left foot rest and in some positions when I press and release the clutch it catches the mat and feels not nice.

I was thinking maybe sew velcro to the bottom? Idk some cars have a little hook/snap thhat holds the mat in place but not ours :-(

get some friction mat at your grocery store, home depot. it is sold in the section where you buy shelf liners.

it is rubber mat with holes in it. cut a 8x11" section and place it under your floor mat. no more slipping.

Try asking your dealer for the Velcro hooks, mine forgot to put them on the floor mats at delivery on half the cars we bought.

I have the same problem. The Velcro hooks sound like the way to go.

My dealer left them off too. I did just what I suggested above and got two off Ebay and popped them down and problem solved.

Yea. It will be well worth $18 to be rid of this annoyance.

Guys, I just got these things in the mail today (crazy fast shipping from that ebay link)

I have no idea how to install them! My floor mats have the soft velcro pads, but my floor has no holes to plug the little discs into. Am I supposed to cut the hole myself or wtf?

I thought the same thing. The holes are there you just need a flashlight to find them and go by feel. You have to force them down and then twist them ninety degrees. I initially was tentative about this and then did a Google search and found out I needed to just man handle them. I also used a small knife to slightly enlarge the hole through the flooring carpet.

Thanks that helped. Just went out and installed them in about 30 seconds. The slots they snap into are covered by the carpet and impossible to see. I had to feel for them.

Here's the problem I have, the plastic pieces I installed on the floor are fine. For the mat itself, it came with velcro circles that taped to the floormat. Well, with heat and moving around the glue eventually separates from the velcro pad and the mat. I don't know a better solution other than trying to just sew on some velcro pieces into the mat itself. Or am I doing something wrong???

Can anyone confirm whether or not there are holes/slots for hooks on the front passenger side of a '11 e92? I have the velcro hooks for the front drivers mat, but recently swapped them out for my WeatherTech DigitalFit winter mats and they included two sets of hooks. For the life of me I can't find the slot on the carpet on the passenger side.

You may not have a hole for the screw in hook and may need to make one. It's self drilling, just position it where the mat should go and screw it in.
