I just installed front and rear mud flaps for my Sorento, they look very nice if I don't say so myself. Only problem I ran into was when I was installing the rear, the center screw I couldn't get to. I even have a very short screwdriver, but the tire was in the way. I went ahead and skipped it because I have one on the top and one on the bottom, it move a little bit after I attached it but not enough to worry that it will fall off. Hope this helps anyone debating on whether or not to DIY.

I installed all 4 mudflaps as well, and I'd highly recommend that you put in the center screws. I have a low profile S shaped screwdriver that worked perfectly, you can find them at Lowes or any hardware store (pretty cheap).

Why not just jack up the rear, and remove a tire to install the remaining screws? Wouldn't you rather make sure they are secured properly, instead of them possibly ripping off?
