Default 03 Sprinter rear splash guard removal/replacement?

Kinda dumb question. Anyone ever had their Sprinter's splash guard(mud flap) broken?
Came home from town and noticed, I guess someone must of hit splash guard breaking it off the wheelwell plastic flange.
It's just hanging there and I guess must be a bracket under towards center of van holding it on.
I can't get down to see and looked online and looks like there is a bracket under there.

In meantime need get it off since figure get hung on wheel or at best just flop around beating fender. Figured use hedge pruning lopper so don't need get under van to do that.
Any sugguestions?
Thanks!

I can't imagine the 03 is much different than the 04 (which I have). The flaps are just held on with a few screws or bolts into the wheel well. Very easy to remove.

There is a tin metal bracket underneath with some screws.

The one 2004 flap was damaged when I bought the van. I used ss screws with small washers rather than replacing the OEM rivets.

"Thanks" to both of you for replies and information.
Must be only the bracket underneath holding it on cause both ones securing to plastic wheelwell flange is broken off as well as piece of that flange. Don't understand how a vehicle hit it and not done any damage to fender behind wheelwell. Lucky I guess.
