    Hey Folks,

    I fitted a set of mud flaps recently (thanks to Kenny for the quick despatch) and I’m very pleased with them. However, the rear flaps are rubbing against the inside edge of the wheels. I’m fairly sure I haven’t fit them correctly, although with needing to get the car back on a lift it will be a while before I can rectify this. Does anyone have a photo of the rear brackets and fitting of the flap? Or any advice?

    Unsure if it makes a difference, but I have rallyflapz 4mm PVC.

    I’ll also put some pics below to show what I mean.

    On first looking at that first image, it looks like the mud flap is fitted to a green planter, then I look again and its the immense shine giving a reflection.

    Here you are, when fitted correctly they can’t rub !! The markings O/S and N/S are the wring way round as I found when I fitted another set last month

    I bought more rivets and speed clips for my rally armour ones from vehicleclips.co.uk and put larger stainless screws in to bring them closer

    if you buy hinge cover caps you don’t see the screws and it’s easier to clean as well 👍 I bought mine from forgefix.co.uk there’s two sizes buy the biggest

    Thankfully mine follower the contour of the wheel arch quite tightly and as you know you can’t beat tight flaps

    @Norbert picture is bang on! Your mud-flaps  are not level at the back and there’s an angle to the bracket so I would guess you’ve got the brackets from left to right mixed up, the change in angle of the correct bracket would make the flaps level at the back 👍

    @Norbert and @Tall Paul thanks so much for those photos and explanations. I will arrange to get the car back on a lift and see what I can do armed with that information. I’ll also pick up a few of those cover caps.

    @coastliner and people say cars aren’t good for the environment – I drag a flower pot around with me! I took the photo just after washing the car and used a gloss enhancer so that would be why. Made me chuckle!

    For the price you pay for mud flap kit the brackets should be better quality and come pre-bent not some flimsy crap that are laser cut where you fold them weakening the bracket(come flat for packaging easier) sod that make proper brackets and put them in a box.

    when they fall off they will stay off.
