hi

is there anyone on here with a R107 SL with rear mudflaps fitted?

i have a set of genuine ones meant for my car but from holding against where i would clamp them onto, it leaves a gap between the top of the mudflap and the bodywork.

i've seen one SL for sale on ebay that has similar issue.

it seems a bit strange and if anyone who has an SL the same with mudflaps could advise on what theirs is like and whats covered and not covered & where it clips onto

here is a (very) crude diagram of what i mean. looking directly at the mudflap from the wheel side. the box at the top is the boot space, the curvy bit is the rear valance and the line at the side is supposed to inidcate the wheel arch wall/shock absorber.

left diagram shows car without mudflap, right diagram with the mudflap (blue) and the red marks indicate the gap i'm talking about. sorry for the diagram, i know its poor!!

cheers!

i'm now sorted with this. the mudflap does indeed just have the gap in it like the diagram above. Two other 107 SL's (factory fitted) have confirmed this.

They fit on with metal straps if the flap mount doesnt quite meet the body.
