They were easy to put on. Just pop out the plastic rivets (and a 7/32 bolt screw on the bottom of the rear bumper) with a screwdriver or a body tool, put them in place, and pop the rivets back in.
Pro tip: Knock out as much dirt as you can before you put them on, and washing the rivets will help them go back in easier. Turn the front wheels for easier access, and to pop them in with a hammer. They come with screws that don't fit and aren't needed.
This was a $200.00 option if you ordered them on the car from Ford. I spent about $48.00. They look OEM, though I'm not sure they are.

I bought what I believe is the same product but bought mine from Amazon. I too don't know if they are OEM...probably not. Still, they fit and look as though they are.
The installation was a little bumpier for me. It took me a little more than an hour to install. The biggest reason for this was I didn't understand how the fasteners worked. They have two parts. Once you realize this and how they work, everything becomes simpler. Don't do what I did. I tried to pry out both at the same time, not realizing there were two separate pieces that needed to be pried out separately.

Here is a video that shows this...it's not an Eco Sport or perfect match for the fasteners but close enough and you will get the idea. Its timed stamped to where it explains the fasteners....


It's like a lot of things that you do for the first time. It can be fiddly and even frustrating. Still, if you are a do-it-yourself kind of guy it's not that bad. Now that I have done it, I could probably do it in half the time with little to no frustration.

Here's a better pic of the front. I wish it went a little lower, but I assume that's a ground clearance issue.
The good news is that it sticks out to the side a bit. That should help keep the slop off the doors.

Update:
Now that I've used them in the real world, driving in mud, rain, ice, snow and a mild blizzard, here are my impressions:
The fronts don't do much to keep mud and snow off the doors, but they keep a lot of it off the outside of the lower front fender, and the very front of the driver's door.

The rears are very effective. The typical dirt you get on the back from snow, rain and mud doesn't get on the rear window near as much as it did before.
It also makes sense that I'm kicking up less crap for the vehicle behind me to deal with. Nice.

I agree with Leonard. For $48 US, it's a buy.

I wouldn't mind changing out the factory ones with those that didn/t have a ridiculous "scoop" built into them, yet to see a set though:confused:

I know what you mean. A flat surface wouldn't collect crap in the grooves.
I think it's just to make the flaps more rigid and strong. They clean up just fine in a car wash, so it's not a big issue.
