nope, you really don't even need to take the wheels off, fronts use existing holes, rears, drill 2 holes in plastic.

the hole drilling your talking abouton the rear flaps, is that with the flat mud flaps or the molded ones?

Installed these last night. I think they look very good on the car, but they didin't come with enough screws to follow the instructions. I had to find some more black screws in my garage to hold them on. Also, the instructions expect you to reuse some of the plastic fasteners that hold the wheel well and body panels together. When I tried to remove them, some of them broke, and I had to go to Advance Auto parts and buy new ones. I did not have to remove the rear wheels as the instructions say to do.

The rear ones have the word FUSION embossed on them.

finally got mine   :klavergreg:.  had them installed, while I went to a movie, "The Da Vinci Code" , great flick.  it started to rain as I got home will get pictures later and post.  I was kinda surprised that the FUSION on the back ones weren't painted white.

I'm thinking of getting these for my Black SEL. They look good close up, but I haven't found any pics of the full length of the car to see how it changes the overall apperance. Donald T (or anyone else with these), can you post a picture of your car with them that is full length? It would be much appreciated!! Also, how much do they help in keeping the car cleaner? I'm finding this black paint almost impossible to keep clean, and I notice its mostly because of what gets thrown up on the side of the car from the tires.

Yeah, do the splash guards really keep it cleaner. They put that salt down on the roads and well, salt does not look good on black. Any of you guys have experience yet with these things keeping the salt off of the car?

When DFW had all that salt from the freeze madness, I had JUST put the mud flaps on my Fusion and I actually DID notice a huge difference in the amount of salt/debris/etc on the back of my car. I drove 20+ miles on all the days. Not only did the car handle very well on the icy roads (and it's only a 2WD), the mud flaps did their job.

BUT - I don't have the "Fusion" mud flaps - I bought some others.

If you go here: http://www.partscheap.com/fusion.htm

There are the ones that say "fusion" and the ones that say "Ford" ( F6AZ-16A550-AA) - those were the ones that I bought.

The installation really wasn't bad. I used overkill means to get them on the car though. I drilled a few holes and lined 'em up. If you want pics, let me know.

I bought my molded mud flaps from the dealership I bought my car from. They cost me $48.

I'll be putting them on this weekend. I'll take pictures of how easy it is.

I've ALWAYS used them on my Mustang GT's, really make a HUGE difference in lower panel protection. I'll get them on my 3.0L SEL too. Buy them , you won't be disappointed.
FWIW, the front hood " Styled Bug Shield " is a GREAT thing too :D

I have the rubber floormats which have been great for keeping things clean inside but about these mud flaps-do you notice them at all? Please someone post pics of their car with them! After a road trip or two in my car I have noticed some damage on the lower part of the car so this could help

Here is a link to my car with the flaps (mine is the Tungsten Silver Fusion). The photos do not concentrate on the flaps, but it does give you a peek at how discreet they are. They do help alot and protect my vehicle's lower paint and body. Hope this helps you a bit.

Crap, I forgot to take pictures of my mud flap install. They were really easy to do. The hardest thing was drilling a hole for each of the flaps.

They do look good though. I bought the molded flaps and they ran me about $48 bucks......I think.

I'll try and snap a few pictures after I get the beast washed.

Thanks. :)

I installed them myself, they were super easy. Just follow instructions, real easy. These Splash Guards are the molded
4 Piece Kit, purchased from partscheap.com. Highly recommended. :goodjob:
