Terrain..Then bought a set of oem splash guards.

Customer Question

Just bought a new 2010 Terrain. Then bought a set of OEM splash guards. I assumed they would arrive with instructions in the box. However, the paper in the box said that installation instructions are available in the 'Accessories Manual' for the car. I've searched online and have not had any luck finding a set of the installation instructions. I won't go into my frustration at not including the instructions in the box.....but where can I find them?

thanks - I tried there and couldn't find the install instructions.
Expert:  Mike S. replied 4 years ago.
Yeah, I didn't find anything either. Who did you buy them from and what is the brand of the splash guards?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
They are GMC OEM splash guards, bought on-line. The rear have GMC molded into them....the front are plain.
Expert:  GMC Tech replied 4 years ago.
I can give you the GM installation instructions if you would like?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
That's what I need......the GM instructions to install the OEM splash guards. I have the guards, new in the box with hardware, but no instructions.
Expert:  GMC Tech replied 4 years ago.

Can you give me the vin# XXXXX i can see if yours is a C or an L. There are two installations for this vehicle.
