Sorry for bringing up this up but just about to fit my OEM rear mudflaps and Ive noticed that the bottom of the mudflap is not sitting flush tp the bumper, on closer inspection there appears to be a plastic web preventing this see photos. Now there must be a reason for this but I can remove it has anyone else had this issue?

Whats the tiny plastic web underneath just one of the plastic tabs as this is preventing
the mudflap from sitting flush

Couple of things, I take it you realise there are different ones for the City and Outdoor versions of the Yeti.
You say OEM, do you mean Skoda branded?

Yes ordered from Skoda garage and Skoda branded. All holes line up and moulds into the rear valance perfectly
but there is a small plastic web underneath the tab (as in photo) that is stopping it fitting flush.
I could remove the tiny plastic or cut a small gap in the valance where the 2 plastic tabs fit over and then use the metal clip that came with the mudflaps. Not a big issue but just wondered why its there?
because it doesn't fit flush the existing T25 screw will not reach the hole

I can't work out where this bit is; can you take a photo from a bit further away?

And it would be useful to know exactly what Yeti you have, sicne there can be variations across a few models, as stated by Urrell.

Hi CLJXR,
Hard to distinguish what the tab is obstructing. Interested to see how you progress, as need front guards fitting (non outdoor versions).

Off topic, sorry. What tyres are you running and what psi.
