How did you find fitting the rear mud flaps? I bought some genuine ones from eBay and they won’t stay on they just slide off while driving. Front ones went on fine. Any one else had this problem?

Are they genuine as in GM approved or the terrible hi-tech ones?

The genuine ones can't slide off due to the fitment.

Just checked and they are HITECH ones so guessing they’re not genuine. These ones clamp on the wheel arch with clips and screws but no mater how tight I put them on they slip off. How do the genuine ones fit on the back wheels?

They screw on using the original wheel arch holes and strong double sided tap around the edge. I've had mine on for 10 months and are still solid.

Yeah those hi-tech ones will eventually come loose and you will lose them! The worst design I've ever seen! Stick with the GM ones they are worth the extra money!
