In a Flap
#1
Hi
I am about to order genuine sets of front and rear mudflaps for my 2015 Enterprise van
Are they easy enough to fit properly by myself
or should I leave it to the Stealers
Any assistance or walkthrough procedure would be appreciated on this one please
Regards
C

I fitted an OEM full set to my Multispace. The front ones fitted very easily but the back ones needed a bit more time and patience to get the neat fit required. I didn't use the metal bits in the fitting kits because they are crap and cheap as chips. Instead I use black bighead pop rivets with pop rivet backing washers, which make the setup stronger and much more neat. The plastic fixings fit in holes already there. My son also helped me as the extra pair of hands made it easier to get it right first time, especially on the rear ones. Also the holes I drilled at the front, in metal, were treated with black silicon to prevent rust from starting, but you could use underseal, especially the ones in the sills.

Thanks Corker, very much appreciated..I know exactly what you mean...I'll see what comes with the genuine Citroen parts and if the metal pieces you mention are not fit for purpose then I will resort to your trusted method with the black screws etc
Is this the type of fixing I should be looking for?
   

Please advise

Thanks again Corker.
Did you have to take the front/rear wheels off to get at the spot you wanted to drill
Regards

Big C yes I took the wheels off for the easiest, but you might get away with jacking the body up and turning the wheel to give more room.

If the van is a " keeper " .......... when the drilling is done put a dab of paint on the hole and the fixing that goes into the hole, this will seal the lot from corrosion from inside out. Then put the " other " stuff on ....

Yes Geoff the van is definitely is a keeper as I've only just bought it and about to subtly do a few mods to it. (See other thread in Members Berlingo section)....
Thanks for your reply, much appreciated..
