Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I just looked at it again. Yeah, where those rivets were previously, you can tell that they're tabs of metal, as indicated in picture #3. So the only way to access those tabs to slide the clips on that I can see is to pull the carpet back.

Am I going to screw up the carpet if I pull it back? Above the three rivets removed there are a couple more holding the carpet in place. I just don't want to rip or damage the carpet... Justal13 suggested that the carpet is "forgiving" but I'm not sure if he meant in the front or the rear or if maybe the 2014s have more rivets than the 2011-2013s.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

It is all forgiving...I bent mine back, front and rear, pretty far and there wasnt any issue with it going back to it's original postion.

So go ahead and get it out of your way, it just takes a little patience to get it all lined up and tight.

Good luck.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Yep, you were right, thanks! I finally got one on! And, knowing what I know now, I was able to get the rivets on the other side off in no time.

Now of course I'm missing one of the bolts for the other side's flap. Just my luck!

It's probably (hopefully) under my nose somewhere...

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

When you snipped off the plastic rivets, hopefully you fished out the piece that fell inside the fender. Otherwise, they will rattle around.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Found the bolt by the way -- it was down in the bottom of the toolbox.

Justal13, I think there was one that didn't fall out the bottom, although it may have. Regardless, fortunately I haven't heard any rattling at this point.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I just installed the fronts and missed the small diagram that shows that plastic spacer between the mudflap and the fender. I put it on front side of the mudflap next to the washer on the bolt. Anybody know why that spacer is there? I'm afraid to unscrew the bolt and move the spacer, because that clip might drop down and then I would have to pull the whole flap off and start over.

If you mashed the clips like you said in your other post with channel locks (that's exactly what I did) the clip should not move. I had to move the washer after the install too. But I caught it on the 2nd flap install, maybe this should go behind .

I did the same thing and asked the same question about the washer. I think it's just to make the flap mount flush. There is a slight gap behind the flap between the flap and the liner and the washer fills that gap, rather than "bend" the flap (slightly) to conform.

Thanks for the post. The clips weren't real tight even after the mashing just tight enough to keep them on there. I may get brave and fix it but usually I end up wishing I left good enough alone.
