All I can say is that the right tools help. Watch the vid and if you still struggle try to get up on a lift and it shouldn't be too difficult.

install is not bad at all if you have the tools. the hardest part was trying to figure out which bracket went on which side. LOL


but other than that. it was fun.

for the "FIRST MOD" people? get a good tool set, jack, jack stands and ramps first!!!!!

Just be glad you have the version 2 mudflaps. I had the version 1 and trying to align the flaps are a PITA! The reason is because once you tighten a screw it turns the entire flap by a few degrees. It was a lot of trial and error in the summerheat here in Florida....

it was worse for me because none of the you tube videos matched an 08+ STi / 11+ hatch.

and no disrespect to subieTV or RA, but the instructions / videos sucked.

i just realized that all my pictures are backwards. i will try to fix them and reposed them.

Is a jack required for this mod? Or is it just a recommendation?

I installed mine about a year ago without any specialized tools or jacking up the car or ramps or removing any wheels. If you want an excuse to buy some more tools that's fine, but none of that stuff's necessary for the install. I also found the video instructions easy to follow and very helpful. It's a great learning experience if you're just starting to mess with your car, just take your time.

One tip I would give to avoid unnecessary pain in the assness: Before attaching the mounting bracket, screw on the most "inside" (closest to the center) portion of the mudflap to almost complete tightness; this will avoid the arduous task of having to do this with a tiny screwdriver in a very awkward position.

Tried installing these yesterday, but I couldn't get the damn side skirt to pop off. The first clip popped, but the second one didn't. I almost felt like I was gonna snap the damn thing. I was trying to beat the sun setting after work so I just decided to stop. Anyone else have this problem?
