Hi everyone,

I have ordered a set of mud flaps today online (Peugeot Originals) and i'm hoping to be able to fit them myself.

I just wanted to know if anyone out their has any experience fitting some on their 108 and if they would let me know if they were easy/difficult to fit. Would it be best to take them to my dealer and get them to fit them?

Any help out there would be most appreciated.

Cheers.

I have fitted mud flaps to very many cars. Not fitted to a 108 though. Having had a look at them, they come with rivets provided so some drilling must be required. Two holes for the front set, and six for the rear set. Very easy if you know how to use a drill, and have a rivet gun, and know how to use it. The holes have to be drilled accurately, and you only get one attempt at getting it right. The dealer would always be a last resort for me personally.
Likely to put them on the wrong way, and will be fitted by some lowly member of staff.
Sorry to be cynical, just had years of experience of dealing with the muppets employed by many of the car dealerships. I taught myself, actually fitting them to a 205GTi in 1985, you have to start somewhere, and is very satisfying doing it right.
I have posted a link to a set of rears. Fitting kit is shown in image.

If the dealer c*cks up at least you will have some comeback for them to put it right. If you c*ck up its all on you....

In that case I would be tempted to do it myself, just check everything twice before you drill and you should be fine.

In the words of Clarkson - How hard can it be?

It really should be quite easy to do. The flaps can only go on one way, just as PugFan says, check everything twice (measure twice, drill once, old saying).
However, if you have never used a rivet gun before, would advise you to do some trial work with some spares into some spare piece of material.
Also if drilling into the car body, possibly for front ones, cover up the hole with some paint or rust treatment, etc. Dealer probably would not, and rust would soon follow.

the dealer fitted F/R to my allure, they used self tappers and retaining clips. but the rear ones look to small for the alloys, see a lot of tyre, and still getting tailgate filthy. I was wondering if the 107 rear ones fit the 108?. as they are a lot wider.

I guess it also depends on the mud flaps you purchase and from which company. I know every car is different but my friend just got some for his ride that were literally 'clip on' and they look sweet!

No, he got them for his Mustang, but they were purchase as universal mud flaps from ebay. Maybe you could find something on the ebay website. I guess with time they will have wider one available to the 108.

bought the universal mud flaps of ebay £18.95. the fit is just perfect for the 15inch wheels, better then the 108 ones the dealer fitted for me they are just to small. was looking at the 107 ones , they don't fit at all.

Alan, Can you stick the ebay link up? If they fit well and are easy to fit I may consider a set.
A photo of the car would be helpful too.

Oh, and the moon on a stick...:redface:

Sweet! If you find some spare time it would be nice to see how they look on the 108. Maybe snap a few picks from the rear and throw umm up?!

I dont think that they are small. The front ones are for laugh, but the rear flaps are better than nothing... :D

Rear ones do look okay and as you say, the front ones are a joke. How well do they fit to the bodywork/bumper? Are they a really tight fit? Any small gaps? I bought a fitted set for my Vauxhall Mokka and they were a useless fit. Small gaps between the rubber and bodywork/bumper which would allow small bits of debris to gather leading to scratching of paintwork. Chucked them in the bin, waste of 40 quid.

I haven't fitted them yet. But as i try, they fit very well. Only one small gap at rear ones in the corner.
