How to install front mud flaps?

Hello,

I have bought a pair of the front mud flaps for my '07 530i and I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out how to install them. When I bought the mud flaps, the BMW parts center did not provide any instructions with the parts. Does anyone know how to install them? Or, does anyone know where I might be able to find the installation instructions? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Sweet! Mudflaps!



Sorry couldn't resist.

Try looking it up here and you should find a diagram.

I would imagine they use self tapping screws into the plastic wheel well liner.

Mullman, thanks for your reply.
Yeah, I checked out that site a few days ago and I noticed on the table that lists the part number for the front mud flaps for the 530i, it says under the Notes column, EBA 0301586, and at the bottom the legend for EBA is "optional installation manual". Hmm... I wonder how I could get my hands on that? Your thoughts?

their really straight forward. the holes line up with rivets ahd existing fastners. the 2 part rivets provided are garbage. insert the plastic rivet housing and run a SS #8 x 3/4 inch screw into the rivit housing. the plastic insert doesnt work. then take a black felt permant marker and blanked the SS screws.

marklebob, thanks.
hmm... please pardon me for asking a stupid question. but does 'SS' mean in your response above?
so, the small packet of plastic rivets are not needed? there's about 6 to 8 of them in the small plastic bag.
