Accessory installation

  • Check that the contact faces inside the side members are clean. If necessary, clean opposite where the towing member's side plates are to be fastened.

  • Take the towing member from the kit and insert the two side plates in the holes at the rear edge of the side members.

21
IMG-337314
 

  • Take screws and reinforcement bar from the kit. To hold and adjust the position on the towing beam two people should work together when the screws are inserted in the towing member's weld nuts. Use workshop lift part no. 9985972 and fixture part no. 9995972 under the silencer to position it for better access.


Note!

Do not damage the exhaust system.



Note!

Ensure that the reinforcement bar is positioned correctly, with the embossed part pointing forward as illustrated.


  • Tighten the screws alternately on both sides.

22

    Tightening the screw joint

  • Tighten the screws to 140 Nm (103 Ibf.ft.) and angle tighten to 60°. Use tool part no.9997338 to facilitate access. When angle tightening joints in confined areas a protractor cannot be placed on the torque wrench. Use the head of the hexagon bolt instead to determine the tightening angle. Use workshop lift part.no. 9985972 and fixture part.no. 9995972 under the silencer to position it for better access.

  • Mark the bolt head's flange (1).

  • Make a second mark (2) in the side member or reinforcement bar.

  • Tighten the screw so that the screw head marking (1) lines up with the marking (2) on the side member/reinforcement bar.

  • Repeat for all screws.
