no, because there is no inner arch lip to roll as there is on a nova or Mk2 Golf

you can grind back the inner lip on a corsa, or get a rubber mallet and push the arches out a bit more

cross section of a nova & golf arch lip looks like a 'U' and this is what you roll so that it becomes more like 'll' but obvisouly sealed at the bottom!

debolt the arch and take the lip up with a grinder, then seal the bare metal with primer etc


then bond the arch on, easy as

if you've removed the bolts then just give it a good bangin

also just pull the arch with your hands & brute strength, saves the need for the angle grinder and rust protector.

might just be the plastic lip that is rubbing, which will go away after a month or so

no its defo the mettle arch! over grinded back the plastic splat and removed the bolt! might try getting the lip teased out if that dont work just cut the lip off! would a stiff rear spring and damper stop the wheel going down so far over the bumps so wont hit the metal?

take your arch off and de-bolt it.
using a piece of wood and a hammer, put the wood against the inner arch and hit it with a hammer so you dont damage it.
then using tiger seal bond the arch back on.
thats what ive done, and mine lowered 60mm all round and no rubbing with 17's on
