Hi,

Simple questions please, should I fit front & back mud flaps or not?

Or are they pretty to look at and not much else?

Many thanks,

I have found that they do stop the mud from going on the bottom of the doors. The back set could do with being a little longer. But I'm happy with them, and I did get the cheap from ebay.

I agree with Rich Note.......they need to be longer. The standard items finishes of the trim nicely, and that's about it.


Quite easy enough to extend them if you wish.

I fitted front flaps about 2 months ago, easy to fit and stops alot of dirt on the front doors. Dont forget the screw on the bottom. Use a stubby screwdriver for that one

I also fitted just the fronts, at a million pounds a pair I don't need rears, the dirt can just spray on the car behind


As stated above, they are dead easy to fit with a stubby screwdriver (I did mine in the dark by torchlight), but could do with being a lot bigger, as there is still a lot of mud and grit getting on my lower door panels.

It takes a little longer than you think, as you need to clean where they will be fitting.

I bought the Nissan ones, at about £22 more than they are worth


Perfect fit, but don't do much, they are too small to be effective.

Thanks MNL.
Even small flaps can help protect the lower paintwork on the doors a little, especially with the amount of stones and other crud thrown up from pot holes these days.
I agree about the rear flaps being a virtual waste of time though, and if longer and made of the same rigid material they would break off really quickly at the first downing off a kerb.

These are the genuine ones, you remove a few screws and then simply replace with mud flap on top.

Thanks for this thread, I am aghast at how much muck from the roads is splattering up the sides of my lovely new car, I think I'll be getting some mudflaps this weekend.

Follow up to my last, I fitted flaps to the back wheels, could not get the front wheels off even with all four bolts undone on my 2013 Note Ntec+ auto 1.6. I had only bought it and I had to go back to the garage to get the steering wheel lined up and tracking sorted, so I got them to fit the front ones when I was there. The service manager told me he had spoken to the sales manager as he was not happy with the tyres on the car which had been sold only a week before. Result three new tyres at no charge to me !!!
