Help Fitting Mk1 Mudflaps

6 posts in this topic

Hey ppl, installed my genuine ford mudflaps today for the rear with no issues. However I need help with the fronts...the metal clips just keep sliding off whenever I fix them on. E.g. if I move the mudflap then it will slide off....not sure if im doing it right.....anyone got any guides or pictures?

bash the clip off the car with a hammer so its a snug fit before tightening the bolt

i tried that but that damned clip just keeps sliding off...Its not like the rear which has more metal on the body to clip onto. It has a really thin (prob 1cm) of metal around the wheel arch for the clip to hold on to.
