Do you have the Nissan part number for those?

From page 3: "Part numbers 76748 and 76749

Apparently these also are used on Altima's from 2007 to 2012. There are a couple of 2007-2009 Altima's in my local boneyards. I might pick up a set if I think of it and it's convenient. Cars don't rust much here in CO and I don't often drive the Leaf in snow so it's not a priority but I do like the look better with the wells in place.

Edit to add: there is a second part to the part number that apparently affects fitment so caveat emptor.

Yes those are the part numbers, but not sure if Nissan uses part numbers across vehicles. When I ordered them they showed as being for the 2018 Leaf with Pro Pilot. The dealer asked for my VIN and I had to explain what I was doing, as my vehicle does not have Pro Pilot.

Installation of these did require the removal of another piece on the rear side of the wheel wells. If someone is curious I can take a photo of the piece.

The omission of rear wheel well liners is apparently a known complaint from new Leaf owners.
My 2019 Leaf SV Plus did not come with protection for the rear wheel wells. The underside of the chassis was exposed to dirt and corrosive elements.
My local dealership was able to fix the problem - now the rear wheel wells have a black liner that covers the bare metal, similar to what you see in the front wheel wells.

This is a list of the parts that the dealership ordered:
767586SA0A: Protector-rear wheel (1) )
767495SA0A: Protector-rear wheel (1)
0155305131: Plastic clip (12)
015532DR9A: Clip (8)
089136065A: Nut (2)
