Installing fender flares on a golf cart can provide added protection and style. Here are the general steps to install fender flares:
1.Gather the necessary materials: You will need the fender flares kit, which typically includes the flares themselves, mounting brackets, screws or bolts, and any necessary installation hardware. Ensure you have the appropriate tools, such as a screwdriver or a drill, to complete the installation.
2.Prepare the golf cart: Park the golf cart on a level surface and turn off the engine. Engage the parking brake to prevent any accidental movement.
3.Remove existing fenders (if applicable): If your golf cart already has fenders installed, you may need to remove them before installing the new fender flares. This step may vary depending on the specific make and model of your golf cart. Consult the manufacturer's instructions or user manual for guidance on removing the existing fenders.
4.Position the fender flares: Take each fender flare and hold it against the corresponding wheel well to determine the proper positioning. Adjust the flares until they align properly and provide the desired coverage.
5.Mark the mounting points: Once the fender flares are correctly positioned, use a pencil or marker to mark the locations of the mounting points on both the flares and the golf cart body. This step ensures accurate installation.
6.Install the mounting brackets: Depending on the design of your fender flares, you may need to attach mounting brackets to the golf cart body. Follow the instructions provided with the fender flares kit to determine the proper placement and secure the brackets using the provided hardware. Use a screwdriver or drill, as necessary, to tighten the brackets securely.
7.Attach the fender flares: With the mounting brackets in place, position each fender flare over its corresponding wheel well. Align the mounting holes on the flares with the brackets or designated locations on the golf cart body. Insert the screws or bolts through the holes and tighten them securely, using the appropriate tools.
8.Double-check the installation: Once all the fender flares are attached, inspect the installation to ensure they are securely fastened and properly aligned. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure a snug fit.
9.Repeat for all fender flares: If your golf cart has multiple wheel wells and fender flares, repeat the installation steps for each one until all the flares are properly installed.
10.Test and finalize: Before using the golf cart, give the fender flares a final check to ensure they are firmly in place. Take the golf cart for a short test drive to verify that the flares do not interfere with the wheels' movement and that they provide the desired protection and coverage.
Remember, these steps are general guidelines, and the specific installation process may vary depending on the fender flares kit and your golf cart's make and model. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for detailed guidance on installing the specific fender flares you have purchased.
