Picked up a set of molded mud guards directly from the dealership. Install was a piece of cake except for the right front guard. For some reason the bottom screw wont line up. The screw I'm referring to is more rubber than metal, almost like a fitting of some sort.

As of right now I only have the three main screws above it holding the guard on. Seems sturdy enough, but I hate leaving something half baked.

Should the three screws along the fender wall be enough to hold it on?

Thanks, appreciate any suggestions.

Probably but the molded guards have a tendency to pack off if you get into the mud so be careful not to let them go too long loaded up like that or you may find the limit of the missing screw.

I only have 3 screws in mine and haven't had an issue, but I haven't exactly had Big Red in the deep stuff either!

I'll try to take some pics tomorrow and post. I'll most likely run into deep snow more frequently than mud. However, I'll still keep that in mind. Thanks!

Ran mine with 3 screws and lost one flap. That sucked, because you can only buy them in pairs, so i wound up replacing them both with the new flaps. One screw missing cost me another set of flaps, so my advice is, find some way to get that 4th screw in there if you can... even if you have to drill another hole.
