1995 900 - Mud Flap Under Car?

Forum Tech corner 1995 900 - Mud Flap Under Car?

I recently purchased a 1995 900 5-door, and there is what looks like a small mud flap bolted on the bottom of the car under the driver seat. It looks like the passenger side one is missing...

Is this a factory thing, and if so what specific part of the undercarriage is it there to protect?

it is an aerodynamic enhancement to move the water away from the rear wheels. and it works.

Thanks! That makes sense now. Wonder why they didn't catch on with some other cars?

The roads must be a lot smoother in Sweden because it keeps bottoming out on curbs, driveways and speed-bumps here. I've removed it (since the passenger side one was gone anyways) and I don't do any real highway driving with it anyways.

Thanks again for the reply.
