I installed aftermarket flaps last night and had 2 issues. On the RR guard, the hex screw was missing from the car.
On the front flaps, I had a hard time getting the bottom clip back in because the Felt liner kept giving way. I had to get under the car, get a light on the clip and use a tool to press the felt out as I secured the clip.
Photo 1 is the missing screw, photo 2 is the general area when I had to push the liner out
Just wondering if anyone else nothing these things

I didn't have any issues with the true Ford ones (they were in a box inside the back of the car when we bought it), they went on without even pulling the wheel.
I did have issue with this "brand" with the front ones on my Fusion, the bottom screw had to be put in half way or it couldn't be threaded with the pins mounted.
Mounting issues like these are caused by manufacturer using a Kuga and Mondeo for their design instead of an Escape and a Fusion. While the sheet metal may be the same, there are differences between the Kuga & Escape bumper covers.
