The moulding drops into and protects the lower part of the boot (from the forward shelf downwards) but does not protect the boot above this. The moulding has a cut-out in the top right, and on my 1.5 SE (convertible) this leaves the shelf and carpet unprotected in the area below the tyre repair kit.
I imagine the cut-out is to go around a feature on a different model. I appreciate Mazda want a ‘one size fits all’ solution, but a complete liner with cutting lines moulded on would be more functional. An even better approach would be to omit the boot carpet altogether and fit a full-size moulding as standard.
This is a genuine Mazda part and it is good as it far as it goes, so 4/5 from me.
