Default Splash Guards

Was thinking of ordering the splash guards for my 2011 arctic white coupe 1lt from parts-taxi. Was wondering are they hard to install , do they use existing fasteners or must new screws and holes to attach to the fenders.

The front ones use existing fasteners (actually you replace the existing ones with slightly larger ones included in the kit). You will need to drill two holes for each of the rears. Very easy to install. A floor jack, a lug wrench, a torque wrench and a drill are all you need.

Easy install. I have done several sets and i have found that it is much easier if you remove the rear wheels for working room. Do a test fit before removing the high bond tape protection strip. Watch the placement on the uppermost part of the piece, Make sure it is aligned perfectly before sticking it down. You only get one shot at this so take your time.

I just installed a set today and actually its four but it's in the wheel well liner and not the quarter panel.

I should have done this when I first got my car. GM should have included them out of the factory. Mine has a bad case of road rash. So who cares! Its car that you love to drive and if you want a mint garage queen the original buyer is the loser.
