Note!

Two people are required for this operation.


  • Align the skid plate at the sides by holding it in position so that it is aligned with the embossing at the exhaust pipe. If the car has a towbar, the skid plate must be aligned symmetrically with the vertical mounting brackets for the towbar.

  • Align the skid plate vertically so that the embossing is at the same level as the embossing on the bumper seen from immediately behind.

Illustration B

  • Accurately mark the holes for the screws by pressing through the holes in the skid plate using a pointed tool

  • Remove the skid plate. First drill out the holes. Use a Ø 6 mm (15/64 ") diameter drill bit. Then enlarge the holes using a Ø 12.5 mm (1/2") diameter drill bit. Drill at right angles to the underlying surface. Do not enlarge the holes excessively or the rubber nut may not secure.

  • Remove any swarf. Clean around the edges of the holes.
