    Default mud flap removal

    I want to remove my mudflaps..the rears are simple you just use a torx key; but the fronts have like two plastic plugs that secures the flap to the inner arch..do these just pull out or what...I don't want cause any damage..
    any info would be great.

    get a very small screw driver and push the centre of them through, this will release them.... unless you can retrieve the centres from behind the arch liners you will need to replace the plastic rivets (about 20p each from Vx). There is also one of these rivet type attachments at the bottom rear edge of the rear set.

    I can't help myself!!!!

    On the bottom pic you can see all the mud thrown up onto the wing mirror... this would have been all up the side of the car without mudflaps.

    Colour coding them makes a world of difference to the look of the car for very little money... cost me £35 to have them done, and the bodyshop used flexible primer, flexible paint and a soft coat laquer to prevent the paint chipping and cracking. You would need to take them off to get tem done but the bodyshop woud be able to degrease them and clean them for painting.
