Mud flap hole much bigger than rivet


Feb 14, 2021
Rancho Cordova, California
I bought the front mud flaps from tesla.com and when I got them, I noticed that the mounting holes are much bigger than the rivets themselves. This means that the flap will be able to shift around a little bit. In fact, I watched a youtube video of someone completing the flap install. When he grabbed it to see how sturdy it was, I could see it shift around a bit. Why the hell did they make the hole size not match the rivet size??????????
