    Default removing fender flairs

    Hi,
    I have a 2006 chevrolet Silverado crew cab.
    I got the truck from auto trader seller. It has fender flairs on it and I want to remove them.

    Two questions : How do I remove them if possible and what tools will be needed? difficulty scale 1-10 ten being to much for a do it your selfer.
    If they can be removed will the truck look like other trucks from factory that didnot have the flairs?

    Any and all replies will be appreciated very much.

    Never put any on, so I can't help you there, but I would think that if they aren't drilled on, there will be some paint differences. Think cars that have had bras on the front.

    Someone did this a couple of weeks back. Do a search for it and it will pop up. Also it is addressed in this months issue of 8 lug magazine. It looks like it was pretty easy to do.

    i havent done it, but i imagine that if it is glued, u will have paint peel, and if it is drilled ud have the holes. also u would have a color difference, because of the wear and tear and the sun being on the rest of the truck

    i installed them before. you can remove them quite easily, all you have to do is remove the 7 push pins on the inside of the fender and they should come off pretty easy. they also have 3m 1/4 2 sided tape that helps hold them on to the outside of the fender. are your flares oem? and are they smooth or testured flares? do you want to sell them? let me know. thanks

    1) About a 3 to perform the task, some have the push/anchor clips, most have machine screws in the inner fender holding them in place, usually 10mm head, some are 5/16 head.
    2) You truck will look like mine, Check Album for Burban/Jmoney and you will see what it look's like without flares, I like it beeter without.
    3) Make sure you clean and wax surface well after you have removed them. If you have any Prepsol
    or Degreaser use this first, this is in case it has the tape holding them in place.


    Any and all replies will be appreciated very much.

    Hey Walleye101,
    thanks for the help. I am new to this site so can you tell me how to get to the photo album of your truck. After I get these things off I will post a reply and hopefully try to get some pictures of the flares and let you see them and make me an offer.

    thanks,

    truckguy.

    Default removing fender flares.

    Jmoney,
    I saw your pictures of the white suburban? and it had the flares? Looking at it, it no way one could know there were flares on it. After seeing that I am going to remove mine this weekend when the weather is a bit warmer. Thanks for the help from you and Walleye.
