Preparing to Install
There are two methods for installation that you can choose between. You’ll either be drilling the fender trim or clipping it. Either way, you’ll want to start the installation process by thoroughly cleaning the fender area, ensuring there is no dust, dirt or grime that may interfere with the installation.
- Position the fender trim in the desired position. Using the pre-drilled holes in the trim as a template, drill holes on flange of vehicle.
- Insert screws into each hole and use a screwdriver to tighten them.
- Once all screws are tightened, clean the fender trim and fender area.
- Pass the straight end of the included clip through one of the slots on the fender trim. Make sure that the hook is securely attached to the inside metal edge of the vehicle’s fender flange.
- Pull the clip from the straight end side using pliers. Bend 180 degrees towards the vehicle’s fender.
- Press the clip flat against the vehicle’s fender for a low profile and snug fit.
