    Default Install Mud Flaps/Splash Guards?

    I grabbed some Pontiac Arrowhead splashguards from the dealership. Part #19213387. I grabbed two pairs.

    I see on the front there are some bolt holes I can utilize.

    But on the back there's nothing to use. Am I just drilling my own holes then? Trying to protect the rockers as best I can because mine are in pristine condition. I know the back guards won't help with this, but I want them at all four wheels so it looks balanced.

    Yes, you drill holes or use self tapping screws on the rear going into the plastic bumper.

    That's what I figured. I'll grab some of those screw clips and drill out some holes then. Thanks guys!

    Got them in! Hopefully that will protect the outsides of the rockers somewhat.

    Handy if you have wider wheels. After I installed mud flaps each wash held up longer lol

    I had a 2014 Chevy Cruze for a while, traded it in on a 2008 Grand Prix when the paint started chipping away from the leading edge of the rear quarter panels. the dealership said it was normal wear and tear, and that I could install mud flaps to stop the erosion. car only had 20k miles on it.

    any pictures of the mud flaps on your car?

    I had old school style rubber flaps on my car.

    I found some ebay that match, mine said grand prix like these do but the silver was worn off.

    Thanks for posting. They don't look to bad. Might get some without the logo; my wheel spacers make for some tread poke.....

    They should help with that. The ones from the dealer require you to drill the holes in the flaps where you need them so you should be able to account for that no problem.
