Mudguard on 36 vs 38

I am struggling with understanding why my Fox Mudguard doesn't fit the same between my 36 and my 38 forks (both are 2021). On the 38 it fits tight and snug both up against the back of the arch and up against the underside of the arch. On my 36, neither is the case and dirty water and mud are packing up around my seals and back of arch.

Fox service has told me they should be fitting exactly the same on both but as you can see in my pics that is just not true.

I finally was able to buy a second mudguard so I didn't have to keep swapping back and forth but it is the same.

I ran the codes and both forks are indeed 2021 models which the guard is supposed to fit both.

In the pics below the red shows the underside gap, and on the other pic, the light shows the gap when everything is attached snug via the screws and against the bleeder posts.

Anyone else have a 2021 36 with mudguard?

It does the same on my 2021 36.
Do you hear any rattling coming from the guard?
I will take it off to see if the rattling stops.

Yes I get a rattle on hard landings. I have bought a third fender and it is the same poor fit as the others. Fox keeps telling me no one else is having this issue but every 36 I have put the fenders on don’t fit. I really believe that this is made for the 38 and it “kinda” fits the 36 so Fox markets it both both.

I just was at another shop today and a fender they had only fits right on a 38, on the 36 it does not fit right.

I did put à small piece female velcro between thé guard and the fork. Works well

I can see that working. I could also close the gap with some silicone that dries like hard rubber. But I want to understand why I am told (and it is marketed that) it fits perfect and no one else is having this issue.

I just insalled the integrated fender on my 2022 FOX 36 and it has an awkward gap that it doesn't have on my fox 38.

I had the same pb and it was noisy as well. I solve the pb by addind double face tape in between the guard and the arch.

Great idea. I'm curious can you see the tape from the outside?

Syncro finally came out with their new 36/38 fender, better than the fox in every way.
