I think they look nice and are functional. I live near Seattle. So we get lots of rain and stuff. Can definitely see a difference now from road debris and gunk.
Anyways, I didn't install the bottom 4th screw on any of the mudflaps and like I said, they feel secure to me.
The front sets are pretty straight forward. Everything lines up well. There is a noticeable gap at the very top of the flaps. I would rather it be flush, but oh well. I tried adjusting it by loosening the bolt and pushing it against the panel. Maybe 2-3MM gap? Image is pre-adjustment, so it is a little bit better than shown at the moment.
The rear on my '14 Limited was a little bit different than what was shown in the instructions.
In the instructions, where I have what's listed as the "Factory screw". It's shown as rivet that you cut off. Well that doesn't make sense since it's a damn screw. There's a clip on the felt liner where that screw goes through to secure the liner from the factory.
You do NOT have to remove the wheel to install the rear mudflap. There's 2 options. Easiest will be with a small angle drill. They say to use a 3/32" drill bit. I find that to be a bit on the small size for the screw. I went to the next size larger.
Other option is, there's quite a bit of flex/play with the lower panel. You see where that poly rivet is on the image, that sort of holds the mudflap in place before hand. I held the bottom portion with my hand and pulled outwards a bit to get just enough room to drill my hole for #3.
For #2, you don't have to drill a hole, but you have to cut a hole. You'll see only the felt liner, but if you feel through it, you'll feel a hole behind the liner. Use a box knife or something and cut an "X" where the hole is.
You can't pull the liner out completely, because of that poly rivet holding the liner directly underneath that spot. But you should have enough wiggle room to reach behind it and feel where you're suppose to slide on those clips that the bolt will go through. It is a pain in the ass to line up blind, but doable. I would then thread the bolt through first and feel the backside to make sure it's lined up without the flaps in place. The clip will stay put when you remove the bolt out.
I didn't use the supplied bolt/clip in place of the "Factory screw". I just used the original and felt it was best, since the factory clip wont fit the supplied bolt.
Then I installed #2 bolt, applying pressure against the panel to get it as flush as possible. Then finished off with #3. I used a small Philips to get it done. Again, didn't bother with #4.
The rears fit flush against the panel.
