Install bolt:

  1. Install the bolt though the outer panel
  • Use a plastic washer on both the inside and outside to hold the bolt to the outer bodywork.  The inside washer will protect your paint from wear.
  1. Insert bolt though inner panel and turn bolt to engage.
  • It is normal to be difficult to turn the bolt the first time.
  • If the bolt seems “Loose”, you can add a second washer on the bolt to snug up the fit.
