    Mud flap query

    I've purchased part no 5G0075111/5G0075101 for my 2016 golf 1.6 tdi match edition - I'm still awaiting delivery however could someone confirm whether you need to drill holes to facilitate the fitment of front and rear mudflaps or better still can anyone direct me to the fitment instructions

    1 set: mud flaps (left and right - 5G0 075 111 - 48.20
    1 set: mud flaps as used on GTD/GTE (left and right - 5G0 075 101 - 48.20

    The show a fitting kit but no part number.

    I ordered full mud flaps when I placed the order for my GTD. I've since had them off to wazoyl and there is not drilling needed they fit to existing holes and bracket.

    Now had a look at the fitting instructions - unfortunately you have to take the drill to the car to fit them - sorry I'm not keen on drilling my car

    Have you Googled this? It appears the Mk7 Golf you have to use a drill. Retrofitting mudflaps -- possible, easy?

    This video shows the same as my Mk6 Golf.

    Hi my 2017 GTD estate MK7.5? Can't take the general ones available on eBay

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F323054143791

    As you can see in the pics...

    ... Anybody know of a way around this which does not involve main dealer

    Thanks a lot.

    If they are genuine parts there is no way drilling is involved, they will use clamps or existing holes that already have plastic inserts. I totally agree, the drilling of holes is a no no.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    The genuine ones do need drilling done unfortunately. I asked my dealer about it when I was considering some. This is why they charge a ridiculous amount to fit them for you because of the labour time involved! I didn't bother in the end.
