Hi Folks
Just admired your photo's hope to add mine next month. I never thought about mud flaps when buying my Kuga. My dumb question isare they fitted as standard on the Titanium? I notice from most T model pictures in UK that you all have them fitted.

Hi Jonny Kuga
Unfortunately no they aren't standard, you have to buy them even for the Titanium. Ford doesn't give anything away these days!

I paid £50 for the set.

I hope this helps and no it wasn't a dumb question

Go for mudflaps. They do make a big difference. I have a Panther Black so they are quite discreet but I can't comment on the look on other colours. I am pretty fussy about keeping my Kuga in mint condition and they certainly help in cutting down in dirty spray down the sides.

KugaKen To be fair if you are using a Kuga to haula4/5 year old Bailey Moselle around I cannot see the really point in mudfaps . . but there you go.

A couple of photo's of my Kuga with the flaps on. They are a good investment for little outlay, as they reduce tar spots and stone chips along the side of the vehicle. If buying from ebay, insure your are purchasing genuine ford mudflaps. I fitted these myself. Approx 10 minutes each corner and did not need to remove the wheels.

Picked up my boot protector that I won off ebay today and with the money I saved I'll be getting a full set of mud flaps for my new Kuga this week.

Hi all, I got the ford parts mudflaps back in the summer, not easy to fit, but certainly not difficult, more awkward without taking wheels off. They are excellent though, less mud and tar spots, not to mention stone chips. Well recommended.

Got a set off ebay and fitted them yesterday - very impressed by the quality and the fit. I fitted a set to my wife's puma a few years ago and they are really poor, you have to be careful when washing that you don't knock the clips off!

Hi Stupot.
Mudflaps in hand will be fitting tomorrow.

Reading the instructions, do i use one of the screws i take out fromthe wheelarch lining?

Brain cells are fading since i did this a while ago,but glancing over the instructions on the 'How to' section 'How to install Mudflaps', you do not re use any of the screws from the front arch liners and trim. However I believe the largest screw you remove from the rear arches is reused in a different position.



Other members have also done this themselves so I may be corrected if im wrong. This is a relative easy modification you can carry out yourself and saveyourself a small fortune doing this yourself plus the satisfaction that you know you have cleaned and polished the arches before installing the mudflaps.



To keep them looking clean and good as new and like the rest of the exterior plastic trim I use Auto Glym Bumper Care.
