I had to take my rear wheels off in order to fit the rear mud flaps. I saw how well the back of the 18 inch alloy wheels are finished, a real quality job. What a job putting the wheels back! Very Heavy Ouch

Just got my set in the post, fronts are a doddle but the instructions for the rear suggest removing the original trim to add a nut to screw into. Then replacing the wheelarch trim and screwing the mudflap through into the nut - sounds like this isn't necessary though...Confused

Ref rear- I took off the rear wheel, offered the rear flap against the wheel arch and drilled after which I fixed it with a self tapping screws . If there is a a  screw  hole at the bottom just screw in using a self tapping plastic stud. I did this procedure in 2007 with the 1st Qashqai and now with my year old model I did the same. I did not touch the wheel arch trim.

Don't worry about all the instructions for the rears. I just self tapped them thought the plastic trim and they've been fine for 18months and you would really have to yank em to pull them off !.....the only way they would get banged would be if you reversed into something high enough to damage them and let's face it, you'd probably want to buy some new ones anyway after that....

I would use pictures if I knew how to do it. I have tried without success so I ask as a senior citizen can anyone please advise? I will be able to cover my embarassment when I put my first picture on the forum.

Worth of a small investment, adding mud flaps will make a huge difference during raining day.

Put my mud flaps on today (autoenhancements £22 ish after discount). Set comes with eight screws - two for each flap.

Front ones have three screws in that come out - two on the edge of the wheel arch and one underneath. On one side I got all three back in but on the other couldn't get the middle screw back in at all so put it close to the edge instead.

Rear screws went in no problem at all. But the little poppers that hold the rear bumper at the underside corner are too small to go back in. Anyone know where I can source some longer ones please?

In the interim I put a screw through the mudguard right next to where the poppers are and they re solid.

So not too traumatic and by relocating one front screw I didn't need to take the wheels off. Being a pessimist I also stuck some mammoth tape around where they touch the car just for some extra grip.

Halfords was really disappointing. Very little in the way of clips or screws. They referred me to a Nissan dealer. Hmmm,

Local bike shop had something similar which appear to fit ok and haven't come out yet so looking good. Also sourced a little ratchet device with its head at an angle which takes the driver bits for my electric drill. So no problem with any of the screws now despite the proximity of the wheels.

Looking on Amazon, rather than ebay, I see there are 2 types of mud flaps available.  The ones pictured and and the other type being the good old fashioned mud 'flaps', ie the long flat ones that hang down and are made of hardened rubber.   
Has anyone fitting the older style, do they look any good?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------tried to post pics of my previuos qq but i always.struggle with pics.
have a look in the photo gallery at mine,not sure my new one is in there but the previous black qq is.
always prefered this type of mudflap to the moulded type.only bug bear is that the rear wheels will have to come of to fit.although it is a pain in the ass when done i think it is worth it.Thumbs Up

Two screws or not two screw - OMG, I've made a right pig's ear of my rear mud flaps job. The front ones, no problem, removed two screws, fixed flaps using the same two screws. The rear one, bloody hell, afraid to remove tyre because everyone said, HEAVY. Only way I can see is to drill holes. Than, can only do two because tyre in the way for the lower hole. In a real state now, blood pressure up, sweating away like a pig in the midday sun, wife chewing my head off because there is a spider in the house. Finally managed to fix flaps with just two screws. Don't know how long they will stay fixed. If you are behind me on the M4, keep some distance - just in case my flaps comes off and smashes into your QQ. Wish life was a little simpler.

I didn't drill mine, just put the self tapper through, two behind the tyre, one underneath next to the panel stud that comes out - had to replace that with a longer one

If you read the posts a bit higher up on fitting and as long as you have the three screws in on the front, the two screws on the rear plus the trim clip/popper underneath (I also put in another self tapper next to them just incase) then they shouldn't go anywhere. I was checking mine after every journey but so far they re still inplace. And they keep the car tons cleaner than without.

hi  crolandc, I am probably wrong but looking at the ones on AE and comparing to mine and the rest i cant see the difference, i thought that the 2010 facelift only affected the front and rear lights etc.

Just fitted mine this weekend, £60 from the local dealer but decided to fit them myself as it's a pretty straightforwards job. Can't comment on how much they reduce the spray as despite all the bad weather we'd had in the last month or two it's been pretty nice in the last week since I've had the car!

Had mine fitted about a month after buying my QQ and they definitely do improve the exterior cleanliness of the car, compared with not having them.

So I fitted my Nissan rear flaps as per their scary instructions. Except I didn't remove my 18" wheel or drill. Basically it's really simple and the instructions make it look really complicated. I think the bit that worried me was removing the wheel trim as that's not in the instructions. About half way through I suddenly thought to take some pictures for the forum. How ever I've never been able to post pics so... I'll attempt again later.

So. To remove drivers side rear wheel arch. Facing the wheel, front of car to your right, rear to your left. Undo bolt under neath, left of the wheel, where the wheel arch trim ends . It's like a self tapping screw but with a 10mm (I think) bolt head. Now starting from here pull the wheel arch trim towards you. You should be able to feel where the next fixed point is. Pull this bit toward you. Takes a bit of bravery but not much force. Look at my pics and you can see the white tag that goes into the rectangular slot. That's what's holding on your wheel arch on. Continue round to the next fixed point. Pull again. I think I popped 4 and then had enough room to pop in the metal screw fixings.

Further to my novel above. I have a wrench style screw driver so it only takes an inch of space but even then I think a stubby would fit. I didn't drill, I used the self tapping screws provided to make the holes. The screw fixing clips go on the rectangular indents with the semi circular cut outs you can see on the wheel arch liner. They're a bit loose so I gave mine a little squeeze with pliers to help them stay on. Also helps a lot of you line the fixing clip hole up with your screw hole in your arch trim before you clip everything back together completely.
Eh?
