Installation of front cradle
Align the front edge of the cradle with the rear edge of the joint between the sill panels. Ensure that the tape does not adhere yet. At the same time hook the cradle on the top of the sill panel.
Press in the middle of the pieces of mounting tape.
Installation of rear cradle
Points 10-12, which describe bonding of the sill decor, are carried out to prevent the sill decor from detaching if the lifting table lifting plates are incorrectly positioned against the door sill panel and not against the intended lifting points at the front and rear edges of the door sill. Workshop lifts that lift all away along the door sill must be used with care.
Work must not be carried out at temperatures above 15º C (59º F). Use the nozzle found on the adhesive tube. The bead must not be thicker than the smallest hole in the nozzle.
Apply a single component adhesive to the groove between both mounting hooks on the front cradle, 10 mm (25/64") from the ends of the mounting hooks.
Repeat the procedure with the rear cradle's rear end.
Two people are required for this step.
Align the decor strip's notch, placed on one of the middle catches, in front of the arrow tip at the front end of the rear cradle. The catches and edge must align with the corresponding cradle.
Press the decor panel into the cradles. A clicking noise should be heard when the decor strip is pressed, except from the surfaces where the adhesive is applied.
Ensure that the entire decor strip clicks into place properly.
Illustrations A and B
First detach the central pin from the clip by tapping it in and then pulling it out, but leave it inside the clip a few millimeters. This is done because the decor panel springs in when the clip is attached and the central pin can break off when tapped in.
The vehicle must not be used within two hours of carrying out the work.
Do not wash the vehicle within 72 hours of carrying out the work.
