Stock Mud Guard Install DIY (BRZ & FR-S)

This DIY guide will walk you through installing the stock mud guards on your BRZ/FR-S. These can be purchased @ any Scion dealer for around $65. The part number is PU060-18013-P1

Proceed at your own risk, I'm not responsible for any harm to yourself or your car that occurs while following this guide. Always be careful when under a motor vehicle, ensure it is properly supported at all times.

HERE IS THE STOCK PDF: BRZ Mudguard Installation Guide.pdf

Equipment required:
19mm socket for lug nuts (lug key if needed)
Breaker bar with 3" extension
Torque wrench
Bone tool (or flat head screwdriver for prying)
#2 Phillips screwdriver
5/16" drill bit (or 8mm)
Electric drill
Floor jack
Jack stands (x2)
Wheel Chocks

What's included w/the Mud Guards




FRONT INSTALL PROCEDURE
NOTE:
- Ensure the car is in gear and parking brake engaged.
- The first step is to break loose the lug nuts on the front wheels. Use a breaker bar, as most torque wrenches should not be used to untorque nuts.
- Next, jack up the front of the car.







NOTE:
- I recommend using a set of jack pads like these, got them @ Harbor Freight for $8














NOTE:
- Ensure all tools have been removed from underneath vehicle
- Install the lug nuts to finger tightness while wheel is in the air
- Once on the ground, torque lugs in a star pattern to 89 ft-lbs

Proceed at your own risk, I'm not responsible for any harm to yourself or your car that occurs while following this guide. Always be careful when under a motor vehicle, ensure it is properly supported at all times.

REAR INSTALL PROCEDURE
NOTE:
- The first step is to break loose the lug nuts on the rear wheels. Use a breaker bar, as most torque wrenches should not be used to untorque nuts.
- Place wheel chocks in front of the front tires.
- Next, jack up the front of the car.

















NOTE:
- Ensure all tools have been removed from underneath vehicle
- Install the lug nuts to finger tightness while wheel is in the air
- Once on the ground, torque lugs in a star pattern to 89 ft-lbs
- Most torque wrenches should be returned to 0 ft-lbs when not in use.

The key step missing: wash the car first. No point in locking dirt under theguards. Also, I'd include scion instructions pdf in the OP.
Nice pics.

Washing it first really goes without saying. Although I did note on one slide that I wiped down and QD'd (quick detailed) the area under each guard.

As for the stock instructions, that's a good idea. They've been added to the original post

Just finished installing today. Great write up. Only $50 for the set from Toyota.

NOTE - Not sure why, but the baggies of screws and clips have different part numbers than the OP's bags. However, the front hardware is packaged with a front splash guard and the rear hardware is packaged with one of the rear splash guards. Even if you get them mixed up, only the rear uses the short metal clips, so that bag belongs to the back.

Thank you.

I will be doing this and dedicate the install to you. Although it looks dangerous, if I cut myself with one of the mud guards I will also be suing everyone in this thread.

I installed hardware without drilling as well. Installed a bit differently.

How did you do that? Seems like you are going to get a lot of strain on the outer fasteners at high speeds. Did you just completely skip that fastener deep inside the wheel well?

It's possible to do so, but it's a PITA.

i did it without taking the wheels off. For the front, if you want to drill the holes, just turn the wheels all the way left/right to gain access to that spot. For the back, if you want to drill the holes, yes you need to take the wheels off.

I did it all without actually drilling. I just installed the screws/pushpins that had precut holes and then used some 3M double sided mounting adhesive where it would have been drilled. It's been holding strong for around a month now

It should be drilled to attach the last tab for tightness and mainly to prevent it from moving and etching the paint. After months of temp changes, moisture winter tape would break down.
