Has anyone bought splash guards for there ride. The dealer is asking $75 per axle. Have seen on ebay for $55. Who has purhased and what do they think of what they purchased.
makes perfect sense...think I'll do that...thxGlen, I know you are installing the cleartastic, but the splash guards might be something that would help working with the cleartastic. I think it would probably extend the life of the clear film for you. JMO.
They are the GM splash guards that you can get at your local Chevy parts department. If you don't have a relationship at your dealer that you can get a decent discount, there are a number of suppliers that you can get them from reasonably. If this forum's sponsor does not carry them and may not since they are not a Chevy dealer, there are dealers that sponsor various forums that you can get these at a reasonable price.Were these the official GM splash guards or aftermarket. I would like to buy before any paint damage can occur.
Please PM me the link....thank you!I got a set from the dealer that sponsors that "other" forum. $60 per set and about $12 shipping.
RichJust sent you a PM.
Adam Pitali is a great guy and sells very good products. I met Adam about 10 years ago and he actually came to my house in Maryland. That was the start of my using his products. You are right, there were a few bottles of Adam's stuff in the pic, I did not mean to include them. If you saw my Gladiator tall floor cabinet, it has basically all Adam's stuff in there.Rich
If you would be so kind…PM me the link as well?
I also saw some Adam's stuff in your photo - know him well, do some work for him occasionally….
I am not sure if there is a single part number for both front and rear because they can be bought separately. The going price will differ from dealer to dealer, but in the range of $60 an axle plus shipping. DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT pay someone anything, let alone $100 to install the splash guards. Each guard is fastened with a single 7 mm screw at the very bottom of your fender plus four or five push in trim tabs. Go out to your car and reach down at the underside of your fender directly behind your wheel well and you will feel the 7mm screw head. Back that out and GENTLY pull away the current piece that protects the fender where it rolls inside the wheel well. If you pull easy, it will pop the trim tabs out of the fender one at a time. Then replace in reverse order starting with the top trim tab. Then replace the 7mm screw. It will take anyone that has any mechanical ability about 10 minutes to do the four guards. If you are tool challenged, then maybe 30 minutes. If you are not sure this is something that you can do, go out and remove your current piece on one of your wheel wells and then replace it. You will see how simple this is. If you insist on paying someone and in the Fort Myers area, I will do it for you for 1/2 of what you are quoted, ...or maybe a beer would work too.Here is a quote from my Corvette sales rep when I asked him about the splash guards...."The GM part number for the splash guards is 19170234 and we can get it usually within a week. They cost $130 plus installation (extra, about $100 or less)"
