J8601101
 

  • Remove the backing tape on the template from the kit.

  • Press the template onto the embossing on the bumper cover. The marking (1) on the template must be opposite the front edge of the tape. The marking (2) on the template must be in line with the curve (3) at the top edge of the embossing on the bumper cover.

  • Take a sharp knife. First make a thin cut along the edges of the inside of the template. This provides a groove to follow. Then cut carefully out of the bumper cover.


    Note!

    Cut carefully. It is easy to slip with the knife and move outside the template.


  • Remove the template.

  • Install the protective cover for the front engine block heater socket from the kit. Check that it aligns. Adjust the hole using a knife or file as necessary.

  • Smooth off the hole edges. Remove any swarf.
