    well of what i know, they are just bonded on, some of the spoilers that you can get look like they are meant to be bolted in place but they dont. if you fit them in place with some masking tape, get underneath and have a look at would could possibly be used for the bracket!

    where did you get them from and for what price?

    First of all there are 2 pieces of trim that need to be taken of each side of the car. Once they are off you need to clean off all the glue it has left behind. 1 screw in front wheel arch needs to be removed first and there are 2 brackets in the kit that are used to bolt them to the floor underneath. Once they are fitted, trial fit the lot before covering the edges in glue and sticking them on finally.

    yes the brackets are missing from them, i did take off the the 2 strips from my car and it all fits perfect apart from the underneath because the brakets are missing, mate is there any chance that you can get the part number for those brackets for me, it would be a great help to me

    Kit is the following

    1 x fitting instruction book
    2 x skirts
    4 x brackets
    8 x screws
    8 x plastic stickers, these are used for covering the holes that are left when you remove the original side trims. They create a seal so that the water cant get in and rust the holes.

    You would only need the brackets to be honest mate, i'd fill the holes with sealer to prevent the rust and the screws dont look like anything special.

    I got the same skirts and i didn't use the clips, didn't need them. Don't think i got them knocking around as i think i threw them in the bin as they fitted pretty **** when i did try to fit them.

    so did you simply just bonded the the top half, dont you find that that underneath of the skirt is loose??or is it secure?
