Yes, fiddly indeed. I installed the VW mudflaps (F&R) on mine, and while there is nothing particularly difficult about the installation, there is a lot of time-consuming drilling (into plastic) and fitting.Labour cost. A tad fiddly. Front worse than back. the mudflats are cheap enough though and if you are mechanical minded and can decipher the cryptic instructions and diagrams then is a DIY job.
Well the gum tree add looks ok , but not having seen a real set do they look complete and will they fit, I really need a set but not willing to be ripped by VW.Gumtree (for interstate purchasers) can be a bit hit and miss.
However, you may have friends/relatives who could check out the purchaser (if they live locally).Volkswagen Touareg 11-15 2ND Gen Mudflaps Mud Guards Flap Splash | Other Parts & Accessories | Gumtree Australia Liverpool Area - Chipping Norton | 1096153754
Very similar set that I purchased ex Sth Africa fro my wife's 2010 Polo. Simple to install, and look OEM
DO you still have the HK link or site where you purchased yours, cheersMine were bought from Hong Kong. Were OEM and approx. 70USD back when the AUD was worth a few more green backs.
You need to make sure that mud flaps have the spacer blocks and clips - some appear not to. ie you do NOT want to be just screwing them to the existing plastic but though the plastic to the spacer blocks and/or clips.
Attached are the instructions I received.
Edit: the gummy ad does not have enough mounting bits IMO.
Thanks the site is not selling, will have to explore, did you have any probs with yours re fitting and quality?
