Have a look at Ford's own accessory mudflaps - I've had them on several cars and they fit pretty well plus come with fixings/clamps suitable so you don't need to drill holes.

Just a pity they don't do a set to fit the Focus ST :(

You need to purchase a set of these exact flaps:

Then you need to make up a little bracket,

Now you can use two 2p coins for this, all your doing is bridging the existing screw,

Let me explain:

The below image shows the rear wheel arch with top and bottom factory screw in place,

The top screw will go through the bracket, while the second hole will grip the custom mud flap to the bracket allowing the wide flap to sit tidy,

Bottom factory screw also drill through custom flap insert factory screw through flap in to factory hole

See here little bracket fitted,

Lower factory screw also fitted gripping the flap tight:

Repeat process on passenger side rear arch,

Now for the front flaps fitting...

See markings in image below,

A small plate is fitted to the top factory scew,

This plate sits between the arch and mud flap to keep the flap flush with the side skirt.

The screws supplied with the universal flaps are 3/32

This is the reason you need to use a 3/32 drill bit when adding additional pilot holes,

The measurements marked out on the skirt:

160mm

And

Inwards 12mm

This exact location is a hollow cavity within the side skirt,

You can safely drill in to the skirt end cap securing the mud flap without making contact with any metal of the car.

Fitted over two years now, still like the first day fitted,

My cars lowerd 35mm ST ride height no issues scraping flaps atall.

Even picked up an aero wrapper which i thought was funny since the flaps themselves are quite lite,

What is that bit on a skirt?

The plastic is thicker on that point because there is a small bracket supplied with the genuine ford mudflaps that grips that section to the flap,

The screw underneath the skirt also comes out then reinserted through the genuine flap gripping it from underneath aswell.

That poece of plastic is the end fastener for the standard sill protector/filler fitted if you don't have skirts on your car.

Thanks for the offer there of help there Lenny :)

I've run the Rallyflapz on my 2 ST's - the rears fit as per their instructions, using the 2 rear wheelarch liner to bumper screws plus 2 pushpins you fit into holes drilled in the liner.

Bit more faffing with the fronts as I didn't want to drill holes in the sill end cap. So instead I made up a small bracket for each side with j-nut/clip fitted which I was able to bolt through a hole in the body just at the end of the sill. Then the lower section of hte mudflap is screwed onto this bracket. So they're bolted top and bottom and the sill endcaps covered in PVC tape before bonding the mudflap to them with windscreen PU - great for sticking things together but an absolute nightmare if you touch anything else after getting it on your fingers!

I have had to replace the front set as I didn't quite trim enough off them after fitting and from dragging on the floor going up ramps etc they eventually split in places. With my car being lowered and having the bilstein dampers too you do have to cut a fair amount from the bottom of the front mudflaps, no problem with the rears though.

Realise the rallyflapz are an acquired taste but I'm happy enough with mine :)

No problem,

Glad you got kitted out with them to protect the body work and skirts,

Mine only scuff on certain speed bumps but i do my best to avoid them :)
