Are these GM parts? How easy to fit, did you need to do any drilling?

Hi Victor. Genuine GM parts and no drilling. Took about 45 minutes with the rears being the pain to do as you need a small ratchet driver and there is not much space between the arch and the wheel. Front was easier just put the wheels on opposite lock for each side. A small spanner would be easy but I did not have any of that size. Cost was £23.50 including postage for front and same for rears,

Hi Victor, I fitted some when I got my antara new. They just use the existing bolts the hold the plastic trim on. 1/4" ratchet helps.

Quite agree. Useful things and they stop a lot of mud splashes. I lost a caravan front window last year (very expensive) and fitted the genuine GM items afterwards to reduce stones and junk from pinging up from the rear wheels. Also, I ran over a lorry silencer laying in the motorway lane and the front n/s mudflap caught it, rather than the doorsill. The mudflap was a bit cheaper and easier to replace.

I have one of these on my caravan. Well worth the investment.
I treated myself (and wife) to a new swift challenger 580 and this keeps it clean and stone chip free .
