Aftermarket mudflaps

Has anyone fitted aftermarket mud flaps to a MK2 '57 plate Focus?

I'm looking at £54 for genuine, but lots of aftermarket ones on offer for under £15.

Obviously the genuine ones will be a perfect fit, but how bad a fit are the other ones?

Any advice/ experience would be appreciated.

you can fit the aftermarket ones by simply cutting off the bit shown in the pic. 

place the mudflaps in place and mark where it overlaps the trim on your car. remove trim and cut off the trim. refit trim and fit mudflaps.

i fitted some universal ones on my car similar to those i the link

buy something similar and it will do the job.

even these ones will work

If u can just buy originals i know there more exspensive but the fit proper without cutting nothing just do the front ones for now if moneys a bit tight and do rears in a few months its the fronts what give the most protection

just got front and rear original  flaps for mine.There  quick  and easy to fit  only took a hour with a brew in there as well  .Last car i fitted after market ones took ages in mucking a round to fit and never really looked to nice.
so genuine flaps are  worth the extra i would say in time,fit and looks.

found them :). i have a 2015 focus so not sure if the instructions are the same for yours .

The only difference  i did to the instructions  are did not jack the car up  or take  wheels off.

Tools used can use others

battery drill  and 6mm drill bit

plastic panel removal toll for clip removal

1/4 ratchet set

screw drivers

torx bit due to 2 supplied  screw being this way.

 

For the front just turn the wheels  full lock  to allow access to drill or use a bradel for the missing hole in picture 7 hole number 4

And for the rear all the holes are present on mine so just a bit  fiddly .I used a a 1/4 ratchet set  to get in to the bolts to remove them
