SERVICE PROCEDURE / INFORMATION

  • Remove the affected screw and washer “set” (one per splash guard).
  • Remove any residual rust staining from the splash guard with a mild solvent or all-purpose cleaner on a clean shop cloth.
  • Install the new kit parts. Assure the splash guard remains in place and tight to the vehicle by holding it upward with a slight inward pressure to avoid any gapping.  The splash guard installation photos below show a proper fit and for comparison, an improper fit with excessive gapping.
