How much did you guys pay for your mud flaps?
I paid 117 including installation and it seems like a rip. I mean, I thought they just screwed on. The Mechanic said that I can't do it on my own, but is this true?

I'm sorry to say that you definitely got ripped off.

The only thing that might make the installation of those mud flaps difficult is that you would probably have to remove the tires to screw them in. But that sure ain't worth $117.

You would've saved a lot more cash doing it yourself if you don't mind going thru the trouble.

Well, the mudflaps themselves are 35 bucks a pair. So, that is like 70 bucks plus tax for the mudflaps, and the remainder in labor. YOu can install the mudflaps yourself. The rear mudflaps require that you use a self tapping screw, since there is no hole, but that is as easy as using a screw driver. I imagine he charged you for like .5 hours of labor.

Sorry to say this but I bought the factory mudflaps for $40 (Hawaii prices are always higher for some reason) but it took all of 20 minutes to remove the wheels and screw them in. The bumper actually already has the indents for where the self tapping screws go and the mudflap kit includes all the hardware (screws, locknuts, and instructions) needed to complete the job.

So they charged me 40-50 bucks for the labour, the bastards. They first wanted 150 and I said noway, then they called me back with new price.
The flaps are nice. It fits the body well, but it's also pretty small.
I got it at Univsersal city nissan in hollywood. Don't go there. they've got horriable service department and even worse salesmen.

Did you tell em that Big Boy sent ya?
Sorry everyone... it's an LA joke.

Yup, I'm with everyone else here. Installed em myself with self tapping screws. I don't know about the front ones cuz I don't have em, but the rear ones are totally non-functional. They're so small that they don't guard the body from ANYTHING. I still get water and mud streaks on my back bumper. Oh well. I just call them my rear "bodykit" extensions.

My dealer already put the mud flaps (only in the rear), fill the car with a full tank of gas and gave me the floor mats, all with a good smile before the car was delivered to me!

From the time you start carrying out and rounding up the equipment(tools). Jack up the car (4 times) remove/install wheels(4 times)adjust height to running level 4 times, install flaps. Put away tools, wash up, start swearing at one of the flaps because when you put it on it was not jacked the same height as it normally rides and is not straight, we're talking 1 2/2 -2 hours minimum-been there-done that many times. Dealer does it quicker because he puts it on a lift and doesn't have to worry about jacks. Then to boot in a year or two you have rust where you don't want it and have chips in paint too. HI2k1- would like to hire you any time-doing the job in 20 minutes-he-he.

Sorry if there was a misunderstanding but the SE won't take flaps on the front due to the body extension kit that comes with it. Only put on the rears flaps.
Anyways, yeah it only needs to take off the two rears tires, take out 2 screws under the bumper, and install 4 new screws total for the flaps and reinstall the 2 bumper screws and put on the tires. Really not that long.
It's basically taking off a tire and immediately reinstalling it in 10 minutes.
Screw installation takes seconds with a screwgun. Maybe add 5 minutes per wheel for cleanup.

I'll second that the mud flaps do not fit on the SE w/ the p/p. This caused thousands of chips in my paint and even on my rear doors!!! Nissan has yet to call me back after I visited them last monday. They said they'll probably fix the chips out of common courtesy but it's not covered under the warranty! Anyway, I bought universal mud flaps at National Auto Sales and I am going to dremel them a little to fit and I think I'll be able to rig them once I get it painted.
I'm also going to get the textured stone guard paint on the bottom of my car!

heh heh..that's pretty funny sr20de 2k. I hate those radio ads.
I have SE w/o pp, so I needed all four. Actually I wanted side sils, but this is all I can afford right now.
Sorry....I don't have digicam, so no pictures yet.
Mud flaps are hard to get in LA. no dealer had them in stock except this one.

I took some pictures today of my car with the cheap-***, $4-a-set mud flaps from Autozone. I'm not much of a photographer, and the digital camera is pretty ****ty (work's, not mine), but you should get a good idea of how it looks. I think that they look pretty good, and they perform their job well.

First off, if you can't tell from the pictures, they're flat. None of this molded crap.
This allows them to fit just fine on the front and back. Hell, I didn't even have to take off my wheels or jack the car up!

The front flaps are just screwed in with the front sill pieces, and the backs are held on with those clip things. The flaps are also plenty long to provide some nice coverage, and you can even adjust how far down you want them to go when you're putting them on!


Anyway, I don't see how those Nissan ones are supposed to provide any protection. All I know is that I have had these on my car since I first purchased it back in August, and the sides are still as beautiful as the day I left the lot (although a little dirty from the rain last week).
