Mud Flaps

hi,

now this is an issue i had with my 4x4. The mudflaps provided are nothing more than spats and as such worse than useless and volvo dont do any extended ones but I managed too find some on ebay that have a drop of about eight inches and are much better. I had too do a slight alteration too the flaps but nothing serious. Have a look on ebay at kia mudflaps and see if there are any that look as though they will do the job.

Hi anthena,

Take a look on the UK Sorento forum http://kiasorento. proboards. com/index. cgi?action=display&board=exterior&thread=4543&page=1#30355 and see what other Sorento owners use. The most popular and the one I used was Vauxhall Fronterra flaps. Enjoy your Sorento. Catch ya later,indoors.

Ive fitted the Fronterra mud flaps to my Sorento. Easy job and they look OK.

I would like to fit a spray pelmet on mine to stop all the dirt and stones . They have them fitted across the back under the rear bumper to MHs and lorries and some are made of bristles to catch the spray .

I have fitted both front and rear see here http://kiasorento. pr. ..ead=8761&page=1 (you might need to register to view) I used Mk2 (03 plate) Frontera rear flaps Part No: 91126406 cost £22. 90 each pair, you will need to fit an extra securing screw at the end to give it a bit of rigidity. Took about 1/2 hour to do a pair, to make the job easy, you will need to remove wheels.

Or take a look at these after I had completed the job.

 

 

 

 

 

Well worth the effort. It does keep the front of the van cleaner.

i have brought some of these for my motor but yet to fit them as i'm waiting till the winter is over, they are a thick rubber that mounts to the inside wheel arch either by retaining bolts or selftapper screws, both of which is surpplied.

Got some ripspeed universal mud flaps from halfords few years ago for my sorento. Just take original off and fit new ones in front of them using same fixings, the original ones being behind them stiffen the new ones. They are now selling at £14. 99 a pair.

when i had the Paj i made some extensions for the rear mudflaps, industrial rubber belting as used for mounting buckets on product elevators, borrowed from work :ph34r: , drilled 4 holes then bolted to the originals with stainless bolts, just used when towing the van then take them off for solo use . smartened them up by buying some Mitsubishi badge stickers to put on, looked great and did the job very well indeed, cost me £2 for the sticky badges.

if you can source the material, well worth doing
