Mud Guards

Has anyone purchased OEM mud guards for their Niro? Are they hard to install and would it require removing the rear wheels for the install? I have 18" RIM so I am curious if anyone has done this on their EX or Touring.

I have a 2018 PHEV EX Premium and did not need to remove the wheels to install the OEM mud guards. I did need to use a stubby screwdriver, but I think my wheels are smaller than yours. So, your experience might be different.

I used an offset screwdriver (one of those ones that's Phillips on one end, slot on the other, sticking out at right angles. Only difficulty was getting the Phillips size right--I borrowed a neighbor's first, which was slightly smaller than the size needed, and couldn't loosen the rear screws. I finally found my own offset screwdriver, which was slightly larger, and bingo! Putting on the mudflaps was a piece of cake.
