Floor Mats....

I have an 04 WRX the driver floor mat constantly slides forward. the mounting tab is missing and the carpet has a big hole where it was.. Just wondering if anyone has had any luck with any aftermarket mats (don't slide forward).

self adhesive Velcro mount them on the floor mats and to the carpet of the car and when ya need to clean the car just peal away the mats.. its worth a shot

If you dig all weather mats, I bought a set of black WeatherTech DigitalFit Floor Liners for the front and back and they all fit really snug and provide plenty of protection everywhere. The driver's side mat does have a hole for the stock tab though, so I don't know if it would slide forward without it or not. I use those in the winter and set of dark gray carpeted mats with "WRX" embroidered on them in the summer.

I actually still have my stock desert beige (tan) carpeted mats - they're really fresh (I swapped them out for the dark gray ones around 1,200 miles) if anybody wants them

same here it was this way when i got it.... i see the rubber ones at the subaru dealer for 38 bucks for a set of 4... however i dont have the stock hook nor can i re install one since the carpet has a huge hole there now... if the rummer ones will not slide i will get them... however i dont know if this is the case... i think i might pull th e carpet back and install some steel plumbers banding under the carpet.. then use the stock hook into the holes in the banding. i think i will mount it off the piece that houses the trunk/ gas door release handles.... i plan on using the stock hook but mounting it into the floor mat itself...

same here lol the hole is HUGE i cant imagine how it happened i would almost cruise with no mat but under all the carpets chewed up from the last owners shoes... kinda wierd i think he drove with his heel dug in or something there literally a whole under the clutch so im gunna order some rubber one ill let you know how they work out.. i was also thinking of trying a bolt wwith a large washer to go under the carpet and put the nut on the outside?? it might look a little cheap so im not sure what im gunna do

I used the stock floor hook from subaru and mounted it into my floor mat facing downward. (had to drill the eyelet out of the floor mat) Then i pulled up the carpet and took out the drivers seat. I used a piece of metal strapping (plumbers banding/ exhaust repair banding) with holes just large enough for the hook to fit snugly into. then used a couple self taping screws to hold the banding down on the cross pillar the seat mounts to. ( i also have the seat mounting bolt going through the banding to make sure it goes nowhere). put everything back together and the put the hook through the hole in the carpet there that was left from the beginning and through the plumbers banding.... jimmied it in becuse in my case its sung... VIOLA! works like a charm so far
