Default Options for mud guards on JSW?

I really like the Rally Armour ones on my GSW, but it doesn't look like they make them for the JSW. I liked them because, unlike stock mud guards, they don't contact any metal part of the body to potentially wear on the paint and eventually rust.

Has anyone had any luck with aftermarket mud guards or am I stuck with factory ones?

I have not seen any for the JSW.

I have had factory ones on all my TDIs, have not noticed any erosion of the paint yet. But others have reported it for sure. They do trap a lot of debris as well.

Perhaps consider some 3M clear tape prior to installation if you are unable to find a better aftermarket replacement?

I put cheap mud flaps on the front. (2012) They went on overtop the plastic wheel well liner.
I have rust forming on the rear hatch, rear quarter panels and the sills on the inside.....
VW recently approved my body repair claim for all butbthe sills. Because of the mud flaps they say. I know what I say but it’s been decided by them.
Take that for whats it’s worth when installing mudflaps.

I want to buy a set of universal Rally Armor flaps, but the rear inner fender wells are hollow so I don’t know what to do. So VW is covering the rust for free?

I thought all JSWs came with mudguards? At least in 2012 they did. Mudguards, monster mats including trunk, cargo blocks.

My 2012 has monster mats, but not splash guards. They’re less than $30 on eBay for a set of four.

My 2013 JSW TDI didn’t come with monster floor mats or mud guards. I bought new monsters, but I’m still looking for mudflaps.

Default mudflats

First thing I did was remove the oem mudguards from my recently purchased '13 JSW. No paint damage but lots of mud trapped by the mudguards. Also amazing how much dirt I found behind the plastic inner fender liners. All gone now though.

I don't see many posts of people using the RallyArmor ones or RokBloks ones on a JSW, has anyone found that they fit properly?

In theory the front ones, if made for a MK6 Golf should bolt on no issues, curious if the rear is the same. I like having a larger flap out back to cut down on the spray and crap that levitates to the rear window.

Also interested in Rally Armor or RokBloks...

Just purchased my JSW and wanting to do this. Had the universal urethane RA ones on my old Mazda 6 wagon. I had to custom fit them. They looked good and did what they were supposed to do!

I bought the RockBLokz for my 2013 JSW. I took a chance, the application doesn't specify Sportwagen, just the Jetta. Sure enough, the rear flaps were wrong. They came with insructions for 11-14 and 15+. Neither matched.

I had to make my own spacers (used PEX) and drill a lower hole. Wasn't bad, but a PITA for the price. But they look good.

Those do look great! I am assuming the front bolt up fine without any retrofitting required, right?

Can you post more pics of them?

Yes, the fronts bolts up just fine.

The rear innder fender sits a lot deeper than the flat plastic spacers they include. I just cut pieces of PEX tubing, about 1 inch long for the lower and mayby 0.5 inch for the upper. Had to drill one new lower hole.

That looks really good. Nice to know that only the rears need to be modified.

I'm having a hard time conceptualizing the PEX tubing your talking about. I don't really know what the spacers or brackets they include look like, so I'm a bit confused.

Anyways, glad to hear that it has been done. Will definitely do this at some point!
