Hi,

Does anyone know the easy way to fit a new rear brake splash guard/backing plate over the rear hub of a 1.6Crdi Cee'd?

I have tried several combinations and positions over the hub, but there must be an easy way or knack to do it which doesn't require a degree from MENSA!!!

There's always one smart a**e.

The reason for renewing back plates is that the old ones have disintegrated with corrosion, so not a case of looking at other side!

The new back plate can be fitted over hub 98% of the way, but manipulating it into final position is the problem

I thought it was a great answer without knowing both sides were shot.
Sometimes the obvious is overlooked.

On reflection:  It might have been better if you had explained the job more clearly from the outset.  In your original post you referred to splash guard in the singular which is what probably led me to the inference that the other one was OK.  How was anyone to know you were replacing two?
 
Anyway did you get it sorted?

One side done, but manipulating back plate over hub was more good luck than management.

Just think there must be an easy way, but it's not obvious.

Have replaced numerous back plates on various vehicles over the years, but these ones seems un-necessarily tricky for what should be a simple straight forward job
