NOTE: The splash guards of the PX models are interchangeable within all years of manufacture. The early models have a silver-grey holder to which an additional rubber splash guard is attached. This is also popular with customizers as it is freed from the rubber flap and looks a bit modified and quite sporty. Also quite slim and well fitting is the part of the models from year of construction 2001. This takes up the round shapes of the side hoods and looks very harmonious. Problems with license plate mounting can arise with the cantilevered and square versions of the T5 and the 1998-2000 models. Here the end of the splash guard protrudes far to the rear, so that a large number plate cannot be mounted without a long distance.
TIP: The splash guard is held from the inside of the body by a so-called spring nut. These can be carefully levered down from the plastic noses and the splash guard removed.
