How to fit Vauxhall Astra mud flaps?

Can anyone help with the fitting of Vauxhall Mud flaps? The instructions that came with these mud flaps consist of just small diagrams which can hardly be seen let alone understood. If anyone can give me 'plain English' instructions on fitting both the front and rear flaps it would be most appreciated. Vehicle involved is the Vauxhall Astra 5 door hatchback 2009. Thanks

How do i install mud flaps 12wx22h inches on my 2011 ram 1500 thanks in advance


That depends on the design of the mud flaps. Typically they have holes in the top for sheet metal screws. Look for any existing sheet metal screws in the fender wheel behind the wheel that match with the holes in the flaps - you can just remove those, put the mud flap up and put the screw back in if it is long enough (if the mud flap doesn't have a metal strip across the mounting edge, you'll need a large washer under the screw head to distribute stress across the material or it will crack).
If you don't have matching holes, you'll have to drill them. If you are going into steel, use a bit sized for the shank of the sheet metal screw, or just drill the screw in directly. After you get the screw in, take it out and fill the hole with rust-protecting sealant, then put the screw back in. If your mounting hole is on fiberglass or plastic, use a nut and bolt with fender washers under both the screw head and the nut. I recommend either stainless steel or cadmium plated hardware for corrosion protection; this is a harsh environment.
If you don't have a straight surface for mounting the mud flap, you may have to bend a heavy galvanized steel strap with holes in it (perhaps a pipe hanger) to make a mounting bracket. Attach one end to the vehicle as described in the previous paragraph, and attach the mud flap to it.
I would expect a new mud flap set would include the necessary hardware to adapt it to different vehicles. If you've already purchased a new set without any of this material, you can look at some of the other sets on the market for ideas on mounting brackets. The exact method you use is not critical, so long as it holds the flap without breaking anything (consider the stresses from flapping back and forth and try to envision where the greatest stresses and material fatigue would be), and is reasonably protected from corrosion.

Hi, I'm thinking of fitting rear mud flaps to my Citroen C4 picasso, just woundering if there any problems fitting them? Mike. (no citroen in dropdown)


fitting rear flaps is a simple job depending on the kit you buy......you may find the rear window gets dirtier with flaps fitted,due to spray being finer.(citroen is the same a puegeot)
