Mudflaps & mud rear bumper
« on: July 17, 2016, 01:22:21 PM »
Rear bumper on my 2012 Mk3 gets really muddy/dirty far too easily :(

Has anyone fitted mudflaps and seen an improvement?

Even better do you have and pictures of them fitted?

I fitted them on Mk3 our when new, back end still got covered.
Can only assume it would be worse without them.
2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

Bought:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330443679306

Paid extra £2.00 for next day delivery, and they did.

Very easy to fit (taking wheels off/on was biggest hassle  ;) ) and impressed with how 'oem' they look.

Tools used:

- Mondeo 2012 wheel jack placed as per Galaxy handbook page 253
- 8mm socket
- 25 Torx
- Small hammer with nail remover used for front plastic fasteners and to knock on rear flap tangs
- Drill (although you could use a sharp/small screwdriver)
- Stiff brush to clean wheel arch

I'll post pics once I've given her a good clean later in the week  :P
