Mud flap question

Hi guys,
I've got a 1.4s Brava and, lovely though it is the rear driver's side mud flap is bent in towards the tyre, I think that it's actually catching it as I drive along as the tread on that tyre is slightly less than on the rest of em.
Is there any way of removing it , flattening it out, and then reattaching it? I can't find anything in the Fiat or Haynes manuals!
Cheers!!!
Great forum btw

Re: Mud flap question

Hi EPS,
I had the same problem on my Brava too.
To remove the flap you will have to jack the car and remove the wheel to get to the screws holding the flap in place.
Personally, I didn't want to mess about doing that so I just pulled the flap right back and wedged something underneath it. You're probably best to leave this in place for a couple of days if you can because the flap can move back against the tyre if you don't leave it long enough.
Hope this helps,
Chris
