      Mud Flaps - simple install

      My new 2018 sides and rear were constantly blasted buy mud and debris when wet (it's always wet here). I added flaps a couple weeks ago. Just a note that the 2018 mud flaps install exactly like the previous generation. You can re-use the 4th lower screw on the lower/inner rear flap just like the previous generation (2015.5 anyway) without drilling. For the others, use the screws that come with the flaps since those screws/bolts are a little longer.

      The 2018 mud front and rear flaps protrude horizontally slightly more than the previous generation so they do the job a little better. Less than 5 minutes per flap to install.

      2018 on the left.

      i would post a photo of the ice and snow and slush hanging off the back of my wheel wells, but they're just too awful. do the mud flaps make a difference? should i ask for them for a holiday gift? not that i could put them on before spring. the ones on the back almost touch the pavement .

      very cool -- can you post some other angles zoomed out so I can see the whole car. I might consider getting them if they're that easy to install =)

      If you look at the installation instructions (follow the links from here) it appears they really are very easy to install.

      My XC60 came with a set of front mud flaps in a Volvo accessory bag in the trunk. They were tucked into the styrofoam next to the jack. Were they supposed to be installed as part of dealer prep, or did I get lucky and someone left them there by accident? Did anyone else get a set? If it makes a difference T8 Inscription delivered to Canada.
      As mentioned very easy to install, just remove three screws, place mud flap in position, and replace with three new screws provided.

      Wow, nice to see that they made them larger as the ones I have on my '15.5 XC60 are just okay IMHO.

      I also added them onto my new XC60 myself. I had done it on my XC90 First Edition and the install was so simple, they're relatively cheap and they function well so it was a no brainer that I wanted them on my XC60 as well.

      I like the functionality, but I'm not a fan of the color. Does anybody know if you can get them color matched? I don't think that grey will look good with my Onyx Black.

      You can have them painted any color you like, just can't order them that way

      In my experience d owning them for my xc90 and now my xc60, they’re not grey but black. Matte black that’s textured, not smooth.

      I had no dislike of them on my onyx black first edition xc90 nor my new onyx black xc60 but it is of course a personal like/dislike thing. If you want them painted to match the vehicle as mentioned above, it can be done, but one would have to have that done themselves after purchasing them.

      Anyone has a photo for installed back mudguard taken from wheel side?

      I ordered mine from 3rd party but haven't installed them yet, only tried without really attaching them.

      The outside matched pretty well, but towards the inside (close to the muffler/wheel wall) there seems a small gap between the bottom of wheel wall and the top of mudguard.

      Just wondering if that is normal, or the small gap is normal?

      Thanks a lot! Mine has a larger gap there, so less protection internally.

      Volvo XC60 Mud Flaps

      I just put a set of the Volvo Mud flaps on my XC60, and I could not see any perceptible gap between the rear mud flap and the rear inner fender well liner.

      Installation help?

      About to try to do this myself on my 2020 XC60... but I have a question:

      What is the name of the part that is labeled D in these instructions?
      https://accessories.volvocars.com/In.../2019/T6%20AWD

      ... and what is the name of the tool one uses to install that part?

      Many thanks in advance for the help...

      I just installed mudflaps on my XC40 RDesign. They weren't Volvo branded flaps but it was so easy. Took less than 20 minutes to do all four flaps. No need to remove any wheels. Looks great and fits perfectly. I don't know if it matters to you or if you already bought yours, but: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 these worked great for me.

      The ones for my XC40 only required undoing of the existing retainer screws, slipping in the new mudflaps and reinstalling the screws. FWIW, the ones I got from Amazon came with a complete set of screws and retainer clips, none of which were needed as the originals worked just fine. Only used a close quarter socket with a #25 Torx security bit otherwise no special tools or tire removal necessary.

      Thanks--went to Lowe's and picked one up for $24 (basically the same one that's in your link) and crawled under the car and did this all myself.

      For anyone else who's not super mechanically inclined: this is VERY EASY if you have the following tools:

      1. An up-close ratchet wrench screwdriver https://www.amazon.com/Neiko-03043A-...0402024&sr=8-6 ... you need this because a regular screwdriver won't fit between the wheel well and the rear wheels. The screwdriver needs a Torx 25 bit.

      2. A rivet fun like the one in the link above. Learn how to use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpyPQ0kvGyo&t=191s

      3. A power drill with a 5mm bit; if you don't have 5mm you can use 3/16th (= 12/64th inch; 5mm is 13/64th).

      The screws are totally easy to replace, just pull old ones and put in new ones. The drill has to go through plastic and some kind of felt material--I drilled the holes, pushed the rivet through and presto!

      Is it possible to fit these without using the rivet?
