Not difficult to fix if the mountings are broken, did this on my last S which was an early one and didn't have them as standard and I had an old pair in the garage.

Cut out all of the remains of the bonded in fasteners otherwise they will rust and cause distortion of the spat. The bottom 2 (or 3, I forget) of the original fastener positions can be re used as they are under the bumper and below the rear quarter panel thus not visible, I used stainless s/t screws on these. Clean up the inner wing and return where the spat fits tightly around and apply a decent thickness of underseal in there immediately before fitting. I used a mastic strip applied to the edge of the spat which lies along the visible rear quarter panel. Get the spat good and warm with a heat gun or similar, it is very rigid when cold and you need it quite warm and flexible to fit it around the wheel arch return properly. The underseal will help to bond it in position around the wheel arch, the mastic strip should help bond it to the quarter panel, pull the spat firmly back against the wheel arch before fitting the s/t screws asthis will keep it in position.

Note that the top of the spat should just come up to the body side moulding. The beauty of this method means there are no visible fasteners in the spat.

That sounds good Stan. So did you seal the whole length of the visible edge of the spat (against the paintwork) with mastic strip against the quarter panel?

I ask because I have some spats with knackered fixings that will possibly find their way on to my car this year

Yes Nige, i had some black sealant strip in a roll I got somewhere, probably for rear light sealant, cleaned both spat an quarter panel of any polish and just laid a bead off the inner edge of the spat. Helps to get the spat warm and flexible, and you really need to dig out all of the bits remaining of old metal fixings otherwise they will rust.

I stuck mine back on with 'Tiger Seal' 2 years ago and they have not budged!!!!!!!!! I also used Tiger Seal to 're-seat' some new stainless machine screws in place of old which had pulled out of the rubber. tested them 24 hours later and could not
pull them out of them rubber!!
Was sceptical at doing this, but after a few other recommendations I tried it and would not hesistate to do so again!

Good luck!

From memory, only 1 or 2 screws enter the bodywork, a couple go under the rear bumper which is plastic, everything else is stuck on less rust opportunity than the original. For the record if your n/a was not fitted originally with 15"spiderwebs, spats would not have been fitted, they were part of the spiderweb option.


Yeah unfortunately no spider webs as stock on this one, but I may change to them in the future to complete the look. I just hate having mud up the back of the car tbh! My workshop is down a fairly muddy road so its inevitable unfortunately.

For those considering fitting spats.
I found this image in my 924 folder earlier today (downloaded it 8 years ago).

I am afraid I cannot credit the club member who originally posted it as I don't know who it was.

However, it may be of some use to someone.

If my body was in great paint shape, no rust, and the spats had broken fixing screws, I’d be very tempted to use strategic blobs of tiger seal to fix. Enough to hold it, not enough to make it a lady dog to remove in the future.

The spat has a lip return to attach to the rear arch lip and a screw underneath at the back to go into the bumper. Just needs 2-3 blobs of tiger seal where the screws would go into the body. Just my thoughts.....
