Default Splash Guard/Mud Flaps

Hello All,

Ive been looking to get some mud flaps for my 2011 5 Door Impreza and just had a few questions regarding a part I found online.

https://www.subaruonlineparts.com/pr...oducts_id=1025

Does anyone have pictures of these on their Subaru? I would like to see a better picture that includes what the rear flaps look like. The part number on this is J1010FG010. Additionally, and maybe more importantly, how difficult are these to install? I'm fairly new when it comes to this type of stuff but I have the feeling that this may be simple enough for me to perform, am I right?

Sorry, I don't have pics but these did come with my 08 OBS. If you're looking for real protection, don't go for these. They're really not long enough or wide enough to do much good. But they do look half way decent on the car. It just depends if you're going for looks(either the color-matched look or the Rally Armor look) or protection(go with Rally Armors or Flapatax)

He drives a 2.5i so that doesnt have the flares or skirts or spats. Much like my car it's an 08 base.

Well here is my car I doubled up and went splashguards and mud flaps.

^^^ But the OP clearly states that he has a "2011 5 door Impreza" Based on what cps102 says, definitely go with the RA mudflaps because it really helps out for protection.

For the installation part, it is simple! Just make sure you have the front tires turned either right or left and for the back you can either have your subie just jacked up or while jacked up take the tire off.

Hope this helps out!

Hey STiKEDA, do you have any more rear shots of your car that shows how the OEM splash guards and rally armors look together? Curious

If you're having any reservations about dropping the 155 for RA's or whatever they cost Google flapatax..... they look just as nice. At half the price

For the OEM guards you don't have to take the rears off-- just use a right angle tool that fits between the tire and the well. It's a bit of turning, but it works fine.

This reminds me that I have a set of RA sitting in my dining room that are begging to be installed.

Now if it would just stop being ****ty outside, I can take care of it...

That's also a true statement for all the RA Flaps. the fronts you just have to turn the wheel to the side. RA has a video on their site.

I wish I would have remembered this on Saturday when I installed mine. I remember reading it in another thread a while back - but totally forgot about it. I didn't take my rear wheels off, but ended up using a pair of pliers to tighten that inside screw. Good thing it had a decent head on it!

^^^ I agree. Do the OEM flaps actually do something, i mean why sell them in the first place?

I'm sure they help with minor stuff... but if you're really going to USE your car and want some decent protection, RA would be the way to go. And did anyone mention how awesome they look?
