The car mudguard is one of the most commonly overlooked items on a vehicle, doing its job with little to no maintenance required and is often the last item to be checked on a vehicle. It is only when one goes missing or is in need of a replacement that vehicle owners realise its importance. Designed to keep mud and gravel from defacing your vehicle, as well as keep debris out of the underside of the car, the importance of this device cannot be understated. Thankfully, replacing a car mudguard is simple, inexpensive and manageable by most average vehicle owners.
Simple and functional, car mudguards can be no more than simple pieces of rubber, with no style or flare of any kind. Many car mudguards are even completely universal and interchangeable, meaning that any car mudguard may fit on any car. For some, however, a car mudguard is just another way to express style and boast individuality. For this reason there are many creative models and designs available, ranging from the cheeky to the downright hardcore. If you are one of these people a range of designs is sure to be found at your local mechanic.
On most vehicles car mudguards can be fitted in a brief amount of time with no more than a simple toolkit. Even casual car owners should have no problem at all. Keep in mind, however, that on some models of car the process may be slightly different, but should still be relatively simple. Also keep in mind that car mudguards rarely need changing at all during the entire lifespan of a car, but should be checked regardless in case of unpredictable damage when driving on particularly hazardous roads.
