Hi all,

I'm regretting forgetting to add mud flaps on our new 6.1 Ocean... has anyone retrofitted? It looks easy enough, but I'd be grateful for any recommendations about the best ones to go for. (I've read various older posts but have the impression that 6.1 might be different from previous models... I might be wrong?)

Thanks!

I'm in the same boat. I didnt realise there was a difference between factory fit or dealer fit when I ordered.
The factory fit rears are secured from inside the bumper and are neater job than the dealer fit rears which are screwed through the bumper and look awful to me.

I might just fit aftermarket one if i can find some decent ones.

I Read a previous post about some "stubbys" that are not screwed apparently.

I have a set of these shorty (stubbies) to fit when I get the van next week. Will post a picture once fitted . Note there is a minor removal of plastic needed on the fronts to make T6.1 compatible.

Hi yes very easy I had bought the correct socket driver as rear had little room to get Into the two screws. Front turned wheels to get easy access to single screw at front 20 mins for all good luck

Question, if I may. I appreciate that these are really aimed at lowered vans. Has any one fitted the "shorty's" to a van at standard ride height? Any pics? Thanks

Many thanks for your prompt reply. Did you have to trim them to fit the T6.1? thanks

I didnt add mud flaps to my original order - should I get these fitted by dealer upon arrival do you think?

I suspect they will only fit genuine VW accessories, which the Ebay ones are unlikely to be. Worth a though.

As I understand it for the dealer to fit VW mudflaps they have to drill holes in your rear bumper so your stuck with them then.
When their done at the factory build stage the fixings are inside the bumper and can’t be seen.
That’s why people fit eBay ones although their not as long.

Aftermarket mud flaps on my T6. No drilling required, uses existing screw holes in wheel arch lining. Van not lowered.
