I just purchased a set of mud flaps ans I'm just wondering if I need to drill the holes for installing the mud flaps?
The other holes on the splash guard do not have holes on the Tesla.
How should I do?
Do you have any tips for installing it ?
If I install both front anf rear, how many holes need to be drilled?This is the one I got, looks the same - but came with all the hardware.
I suggest install just the fronts for now - I have not installed the rear, not really needed in my opinion.
Install is straight forward.
Turn the wheel all the way to the right ( for right/passenger side flap). It makes it easier to use tools that way (more space to work with).
The plastic base for the push clips go over the mud guard - not under it.

I Installed the same set, but did the fronts and rears. I opted to use the plastic push clips, but purchased some from Tesla (there a little smaller then the ones provided). so there was no metal to have rust. And then also if I wanted to remove, I could just install the push clips back into holes and make it look somewhat oem.
Yea, I wasn’t sure if I’d want to keep them on for the summer and wanted a easy way to get them on/off and didn’t want to see empty holes in the plastic. Figured no one would really notice the two extra push clips there if I were to remove them. But I actually like the way they look so I think I’m gonna keep them on all year. Plus can’t hurt, it will protect the sides all year long.Great idea. I'll replace the metal screws with them push clips.
I was at Tesla and they gave me a couple of these, but these are the ones., I sized the drill up but can remember the exact size.Great Idea !!!!
Do you have a link for the clips (If not do you know the size) ????
What size hole did you have to drill for them ??
