    yeah wheels off is easier mate, and impossible to fit at the rear without doing so. Beware though, as I found out the car sits a lot lower than you think when you put it back onthe ground and then sit in it... I had to take my front ones off again cos I'd put them on too low and were scraping the ground the entire time...

    well, having seen VX's 'instructions' again today all i can say is what a pile of carp..

    for the fronts, attach the plastic clip to the side sill over the tiny screw hole, then screw the bottom in first.. then push the mudflap round on to the innerwing, so it fits nicely round the wing..drill through the holes in the mudflap and into the plastic inner wing with an 8mm drill, install the plastic rivets..

    Rears, unscrew the edge of the bumper from the inner wing liner..pull the bumper slightly out and swap the retainers for the supplied ones, then just screw the mudflaps back into these holes, but putting the supplied spacer between the mudflap and the arch liner..finally bend the tab back up onto the lower bumper, drill an 8mm hole and install the plastic rivet..
