Introduction: How to Install Splash Guard / Mud Guard

Picture of How to Install Splash Guard / Mud Guard

This is a fairly simple and easy instruction for installing Splash Guard/ Mud Guard on your Toyota Camry or any car make and model.

Having your Splash guard installed at the dealer is costly and hopefully, this instructible would be helpful for those who want to install their splash guards or mud guards themselves.


If you think this was helpful, please let me know and leave some comments. I would appreciate some of your inputs.

Step 1: Materials

Materials needed.

6mm (1/4) drill bit/drill
Philips screwdriver
10mm (3/8")socket/driver
4 sets of splash guards (comes with the mounting screws, plastic inserts, and spring clips)


note:
Installation of the rear splash guards requires some drilling but not that difficult.

Step 2: Step 1: Mounting Front Splash Guards

Remove push pin A by turning head to the left 1/4 turn and pull.

Place the new plastic insert. (comes with the set when you bought it)

Remove screw B and bolt (located at the bottom of the side panel)

Mount splash guard and repeat procedure on the other side.

Step 3: Step 2: Mounting Rear Splash Guards

Clean surrounding area where splash guard/ mud guard are to be installed.

Locate the existing mount hole under the side bumper. install plastic insert in the hole. Mount splash guard and and install screws (plastic insert comes with your set)

Using part as template, drill 6mm holes in locations A and B while holding part tight against the panel.

Install supplied spring clips. (spring clips comes with your set)

Install screws, and repeat procedure on the other side.


note:
since i was having a hard time drilling because of the rear tire that was on the way of my drill, I decided to take out the bolt at the bottom of the side bumper.

doing this made it easier for me to drill.

Step 4: A Time Well Spent!

So there you have it. Why pay more the dealer to install your splash guard when in less than an hour you can install it yourself!

Tryn to do this. My guards came with just 6 screws that do not fit the fender holes. Trying to find matching push pins is a big problem. Geeze

This was helpful for my 2015 Corolla. The dealer shipped my kit but it had no instructions. The front was straight forward. I just had to match up the right part to the right holes and insert screw.

The rear is where I had to drill. The spots were already marked with a pin point size dimple. I slipped the metal clips over the marked spots and centered them. I used a slightly smaller bit to drill the hole but it was fine. The clips are the important part bc thats what the screws go into and tighten.

Thanks
