Mudflaps on a T Roc R

Post by Nev10080 » Tue Nov 03, 2020 3:36 pm

Just took my T Roc R to Volkswagen to get some mudflaps fitted ,only to be told they only fit the front as the rear don’t quite fit, anyone got ideas if there are any rear mudflaps out there that fit well

Regards Nev

Are the front flaps effective at stopping the mess that builds up under the door . Never had a car that gets as messy as the TROC and am wondering if mudflaps might help ?

@Impala has a better solution. I believe he stuck some foam in the gap and it solved it completely. I’m sure he can explain it better though.

I wish this forum had an actual user paging system. Tagging users with @ does nothing and I’m not sure why we continue doing it :lol:

I assumed u60555z was referring to muck on the outside of the sills, whereas my 'solution' prevents the muck getting up inside the gap along the bottom of the door and building up on the inner door sill. I must try to get some pics.

Here’s something interesting: my SEL did not suffer the problem. It was only when I got the R-line that I noticed it. Coincidence? I’m not sure. Lower ride height and larger wheels? I suppose it’s possible.

In any case, I wouldn’t mind seeing your solution as it’s beginning to look like I frequently take shortcuts through swamps :x

Never had any problem with a build up of mud or dirt anywhere on my R-Line.

As for fitting mudflaps - cause more problems on any car than they are worth IMO, too easy to catch on kerbs, completely spoil the looks and on the T-ROC, totally unnecessary. 15k miles and not a mark down the sides of mine, no stone chips or other such marks, and that includes driving regularly down some really grubby country lanes - in fact the car has probably spent almost half its life driving down muddy filthy country lanes and worst I had down the sides was some horse doo doo.

I believe the area we are talking about is the black edge that is only visible when the door is open (the bottom of the door hides it when closed but there must be a gap that allows muck in). Are you saying that part of your T-Roc never gets dirty? If so, I’d say some of us have faulty fitting parts and perhaps grounds for warranty work.

In all honesty, no build up of any sorts @twist, yes it gets water and dirt marks same as the rest of the sills do, but nothing like what has previously been described. Maybe I'm just lucky....

Attached picture of what you are describing - haven't washed inside the doors all summer so this is the build up over a few months. Personally it's no more than I would expect in all honesty - and I've been up and down country lanes through sun and downpours - roads around here generally pretty muddy and dirty.
