Before you begin - if you have selected No to fitting kit you will require an alcohol wipe, or alcohol cleaner - and a trim removal tool. If you selected yes to a fitting kit we have supplied this, all you need is a piece of tissue, kitchen roll or rag!
Step 1: Trim Removal
Place the trim removal tool against the glass, and pry it in the gap between the glass of the lense and the trim - either at the top or bottom (wherever you have a gap) - Whilst gently prying against the lense to pop the surround out - This should all come out as 1 piece and leave you with the fog lense visible
Take care not to be too rough and damage clips and / or the glass!
Step 2: Clean
Using an alcohol wipe or solution, vigorously clean the area ensuring any residue, dirt, grease and grime is removed - if the lights have been tinted prior please make sure all glue is removed. This is very important, if there is anything on the lense the tape wont stick!
Once cleaned use a DRY CLEAN rag or tissue to ensure the area is fully dry and free of solution!
Step 3: Line up & Stick
Using the top border of the fog light as your guide, remove both of the tape covers and line up the outer edge and top of the guard with your lense - the cover is about 1mm wider on all sides so you cant really get this wrong - Just ensure that the guard fully covers the lense. If installing the race ones ensure your fitment is perfect otherwise your 5 slits wont be in the visible area
Step 4: Confirm fit
Once you've lined up and stuck - push both sides where the tape is for 30 seconds to 1 minute ensuring it is stuck firmly. Giving a gentle tug the cover should be solid.
If it hasn't stuck, your lense was not clean!
Step 5: Build up
Now pop the fog cover back into place, and push firmly in ensuring all clips are in their holes and back in position
