Brand: GM
Price: $30.80 per set

Purchased From: http://pontiac.carcareoutlet.com/



Installation: Easy
Installation Time: 30 minutes
Any Installation Tips You Have: I used a lift to install these because I had to take off the rear tires to drill into the bumper. I also had to use a lift(a jack would work too) to drill on the underside of the cars plastic to install a screw.

Quality of Part: 10
Product Performance: 8
Would you Recommend to Others: YES

Any Other Comments: The guards do not deflect everything, but it did help out alot to protect the body of the car. The retailer I found was the cheapest and pretty quick shipping.

part numbers:
Rear: 12499555
Front: 17800504

Been finally meaning to get a set of these since im tired of cleaning the gooey tar like dirt off the side of my car and will def use this guide. :D

There's a decent deal going on ebay right now if these are the same things and include front and rear. Just msged to guy to make sure though...
Splash guard auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/4-new-GM-Pontiac-G6-mud-flaps-Splash-Guards-w-G6-logo_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ50455QQihZ012QQite mZ220169096305QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW#ebayphotohos ting)

Edit: The guy said they're front and rear but they look a little different in the pic than jerrodmanns? It says molded and the part number he gave me was for a rear spoiler. :shock:

The don't fit the front on the verts. The cars have different contours behind the rear wheels. Pull up to another model it is noticable.

I was thinking of getting these too but I didn't know how they would look. They would be nice in the winter to keep some of the salt off the sides.

Does anyone have pictures of what they look like on a sedan (full car pics, not just close ups)? :wink:

try getting a thin foam and putting it between the splash guards and the car. and it could be because there was dirt between them when you put them on but im guessing you cleaned the area first anyways.

i'm guess it it from them shifting around

i did think of some foam before, but than its still one more thing you have to take off if you ever want to take them off.

:woot: Thread revival FTW!

I'm seriously considering getting these. Did everyone have to remove the rear tires to install them or is there a way to drill the hole without?

easier to pull the wheel
